Q: How Cool are Alamo Drafthouse Posters? A: Very

The Alamo Drafthouse is a consortium of cinemas based in Austin, Texas that is known for showing cult classics and fan favourites. They also have a tradition of commissioning an artist to redesign the posters for the movie they are showing. But which poster's cooler, Alamo or Original? There's only one way to find out!

More after the jump...

Many thanks to all the artists whose work I've featured on this page. All of the images are graphically interesting and I'm not trying to bash any poster designer if I've chosen the alternative poster, it's just personal preference really. Hopefully this has brought some cool poster designs to light and may encourage people to seek out more. I must also credit for providing a lot of the images you see above. If any of the Alamo posters spike your interest, check out, they have new posters and prints on display all the time, and of course it's well worth checking out to see what's happening in Austin.
