Midnight Special and a conversation with Director ...

Presented by Austin Youth Film Festival at Alamo Drafthouse - Mueller

This special screening will feature a Q&A after the screening with Director Jeff Nichols moderated by young filmmakers. This discussion will be focused on the filmmaking process and advice for young filmmakers. Alamo Drafthouse is donating $4 of each ticket sold to Austin Youth Film Festival.


MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is an homage to the kids’ movies of the ’80s, in which the adults are the villains, danger lurks around the corner and a child takes on the role of the “chosen one” on a harrowing journey as he discovers the possibilities of his power.

Helmed by the impressive Jeff Nichols (TAKE SHELTER, MUD), MIDNIGHT SPECIAL focuses on the religious zealots, government spooks and sympathetic adults (the powerful cast includes heavy-hitters like Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, and Michael Shannon) trying to harness the power of one special child and the chase that ensues in the effort to capture him or guarantee his freedom.

Nichols has referred to MIDNIGHT SPECIAL as his nod to early John Carpenter films, which is a lofty, respectable goal and we couldn’t be more excited to see the results.
