Alamo Drafthouse to Screen HBO Stephen King Series ‘The Outsider,’ Three Other New Shows (EXCLUSIVE)

The Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain is expanding its relationship with HBO.

Alamo has announced it will screen four new HBO series in its theaters for free, one-night-only events across the country. The first series on the calendar is the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “The Outsider,” starring Ben Mendelsohn, Cynthia Erivo and Jason Bateman, on Wednesday Jan. 8, 2020.

The series delves into a seemingly straightforward investigation of the gruesome murder of a local boy, which leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.

Alamo Drafthouse previously organized a similar screening event back in August for the debut of another HBO series “The Righteous Gemstones.” The three other series to be screened will be announced at a later date.

“I’m so excited to continue our partnership with HBO in celebrating their incredible slate of original programming,” said Henri Mazza, vice president of content, sponsorship and events at Alamo Drafthouse. “And providing fans a chance to watch the new Stephen King event series premiere in our theaters is so much fun.”
