Mandy Patinkin's Coming To The Alamo Drafthouse. Oh, And A Fourth Alamo Is Coming To The Area.

If you're a fan of The Princess Bride, well, prepare to die: Inigo Montoya's totally coming to the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson for a special screening of the comedy classic.

Or, wait, that's not right. This is: Mandy Patinkin, the actor perhaps best known for playing that revenge-seeking swordsman, will be in town. Even better: He'll be kicking off the quote-a-long screening on February 12 with some behind-the-scenes conversation, where he'll dish on some of his favorite stories from making the film. Y'know, kinda like Westley The Farm Boy Carey Elwes did at a screening, via satellite, back in October when he was promoting his behind-the-scenes book, As You Wish.

Similarly, Patinkin's visit to the Drafthouse has a bit of a promotional angle to it as well: He'll also be discussing his new two-man show, The Last Two People on Earth: An Apocalyptic Vaudeville , which will be making its world debut at Richardson's Eisemann Center on Tuesday, February 17. The play will run through Sunday, February 22.

But Patinkin's coming is not the biggest Alamo-related news of the day, turns out. Earlier today the Drafthouse announced that a fourth North Texas location of the chain will be heading to Little Elm in the first quarter of 2016. The eight-screen theaterhouse will open in the new Main Marketplace shopping center at the northwest corner of Main Street and FM 423.

In the coming months, Alamo Drafthouse will also be opening locations near Downtown Dallas and in Irving's soon-to-be $165 million entertainment complex. The company is also maybe looking into the possibility of opening one in Lakewood, too.
