Loudoun native and Broad Run High School graduate Patton Oswalt will be at the Alamo Drafthouse One Loudoun on Tuesday to introduce this month’s, Video Vortex, a monthly feature with obscure, bizarre movies.
Oswalt is an actor, comedian and voice actor who, among other credits, starred in the sitcom “The King of Queens,” voiced the main character in Pixar’s “Ratatouille,” voiced the titular character in “Happy!”, and appears in Netflix’s revival of “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”
On Aug. 20, he will introduce the 1995 horror movie “Ozone,” and $5 from each ticket sale will be donated to the debate club at Oswalt’s high school alma mater.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Mr. Oswalt back to his hometown Alamo Drafthouse for this special screening,” stated Alamo Loudoun’s Creative Manager Bryan Loy. “Audiences are in for a rare treat, as they’ll get to watch the latest, totally bonkers installment of our monthly Video Vortex series with Patton as their master of ceremonies. It’s a cult movie fan’s dream!”
In the movie, according to the Internet Movie Database, a detective is injected with a new drug called Ozone while ambushing a drug dealer. The drug turns users into powerful zombies, and the detective tries to find his partner, who was kidnapped by Ozone addicts, fighting both zombies and hallucinations caused by the drug.
Alamo Drafthouse describes Video Vortex as unearthing “ultra-obscure, ultra-bizarre movies” that are “surreal, hilarious and admirable—usually all at once.”
Tickets are on sale now.
