What I would do on the 4th of July in Austin, TX

...if I could stay up past 9:30pm.

The Alamo Drafthouse's TEAM AMERICA; WORLD POLICE Sing-Along!

From their website:
Sure, you can celebrate your independence the usual way, with a cookout and then fighting for a good spot to set up your folding chair on the pedestrian bridge where little kids will run past you holding sparklers in their hand all night long and you wait for the 20 minute fireworks show that the city puts on. Or you can join us for a midnight screening of TEAM AMERICA featuring sparklers in the theater, American flags for everyone, all of our favorite lines subtitled for everyone to yell out loud, and a triumphant choral walk down Sixth Street afterward with everyone singing, "America! Fuck yeah!" as loud as we possibly can. That's how true American heroes will be celebrating this year, but if you want to let the terrorists win and you're a fan of Kim Jung Il, well then you can just go ahead and skip this show 'cause we don't want you in our theater anyway, you damned commie.
