If You Live In Texas You'll Be Able To Watch 'Horns-Aggies Rivalry At The Movies

Thursday, February 14, 2008


Having watched a Sporting Event or two at a movie theater that serves beer I can tell you that there may be nothing cooler. Well for you Texans out there you'll have the chance to do so (minus the beer but you can always sneak some jack in for your extra large Coke) at Cinemas throughout the state....

The Walt Disney Studios, ESPN and Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. will team up to stream a live HD broadcast of the classic rivalry between the University of Texas and Texas A&M into digital cinema-equipped theatres throughout Texas on February 18, 2008. The game will be shown on a total of 15 screens in Carmike Cinemas, Galaxy Theatres and Rave Motion Pictures cinema locations. Excited fans, unable to be in the Longhorn's sold-out Frank Erwin Center, will be able to cheer together from the equivalent of courtside seats as the teams tip-off.
Pretty sweet if you ask me. Sooner or later they'll be doing this for all games. Hopefully they let you tailgate in the parking lot, but if not you can always hang out at the TGI Fridays next to the Rave Cinema beforehand.

I can imagine that is a pretty cool thing. I've seen a concert in a theatre before, and those are fun. (No, I know what you're thinking, it wasn't Hannah Montana.)

Local theatres here show some Sox games on the screens, usually at least one is a Sox-Yankees matchup. Its a pretty cool experience although I wish they sold beer.

They've been showing the games here in Austin theaters for YEARS... the only difference is that now it will be in HD, which is not a big deal because nobody who goes to these screenings can see clearly by the end of the first quarter.
