Chinatown Happy Hour (HH and a movie)

Never been to the Paramount Theater?......Come to Manuel's for one of the best happy hours in town....they have Austin’s best Happy Hour EVERY DAY!......enjoy 1/2 price appetizers and drink specials from 4-6pm seven days a week!.....can you say crab nachos?.......then mosey down the Avenue to the Paramount and watch what is considered one of the greatest (if not the best) neo-noir films of all time.....CHINATOWN 1974 | 130 min. | Color.......Tuesday, August 20th......Doors @ 6:30 pm | Film @ 7:00 pm.......Directed by Roman Polanski...... Starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, and John Huston......Polanski took all the great elements of film noir, crime dramas, and mystery thrillers and combined them to make of the greatest films of all time........Nicholson gives an iconic performance as a PI who starts working an adultery case and finds himself knee deep in corruption.......

I will be sitting in the balcony since that's where I always sit.....you are welcome to sit anywhere you like.....however, watching a classic film in a classic theater (built in 1915) from the balcony is a whole 'nother movie-going experience....This film is part of a double feature (The Sweet Smell of Success)....One ticket is good for both features when viewed back-to-back on the same day.....anyone who wants to stay for the second feature is welcome.....

Tickets are $10 and if there are 10 of us we can get a booklet of 10 FlixTix for $50 so that would be only $5, right?

If you can't make HH and want to come to the movie anyway, just meet us in front of the box office @ 6:30 at 713 Congress....

Event Parking Information: Secure covered parking is offered to patrons at the One American Center parking garage, conveniently located one block from the Paramount at 600 Congress. Your $6.00 parking pass may be purchased at the garage entrance from the parking attendant (cash only).....entrance is from 7th street which is one-way eastbound, about 1/2 block before you get to Congress.... Garage hours and availability vary by event. You can also park on the street.....metered only until 6:00pm on early weekdays, so you'd only have to feed the meter the one initial time to get you to 6:00.....
