Rolling Roadshow Presents “The Meg” on the Water

Looking for one last adventure, this summer? How about braving the waters with a prehistoric killer shark?

Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow, the brilliant minds behind the always popular JAWS on the Water event, is bringing you the most exciting advance screening you may ever go to. In partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures, Rolling Roadshow is bringing ATX an exclusive advance screening of “The Meg” on Sunday, Aug. 5 at 6 PM!

The action-thriller stars Jason Statham and a 75-foot Megalodon. Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water…

Following the form of the hugely popular “JAWS” events, brave moviegoers will have a chance to screen the film early while floating in the calm waters of Lake Travis off of Volente Beach.

Or maybe needing some liquid courage before swimming with the Megalodon? They’ve got bars on the beach. Bars on the water. House drinks. Beer. Your thirst will be quenched, y’all.
