Alamo 100

We all love a good top ten list, but the Alamo Drafthouse has gone ten times better. They’ve taken the end of 2013 as an opportunity to create the “Alamo 100,” the 100 favorite films of all time according to the theater’s programming team. These films, which predictably run the gamut from undeniable classics to super-specific genre gems, will begin screening at Alamo locations nationwide in the new year. Each month will bring a new slate of films and January gives a great cross section of the list. In January, Drafthouses will screen Brazil, City Lights, The Goonies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Raging Bull, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Sixteen Candles. And that’s just the start. See the full list below.

You can read more about all the films, and see each programmer’s top 100 that worked down to this list, at Alamo100.com. Here’s the list in alphabetical order
