At the Movies:

If the 80′s movie anthem’s didn’t have you belting out some of the most cheese-inspired songs of the era, now it’s your second chance to prove your stamina. Alamo Ritz presents: The 90′s Movie Anthem Sing-Along. Featuring greats that burned a musical jingle in your head like a cattle prod. Sweet ballads from Bryan Adams, Whitney Houston and Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose” with many more greats. All will leave you singing your hearts out, eyes closed and clutched fist to the chest, 90′s style. Alamo Ritz 9:45pm
