Come for the film, stay for the food and drinks.

One Texas-based movie theater chain is giving teachers the chance to escape for free this summer — even if it’s only for a few hours.

Teachers on summer vacation can while away the weeks until school starts again with free movies at Alamo Drafthouse locations throughout the country.

Educators and faculty members at any school or university can get one free ticket to select showings at Alamo Drafthouse after presenting their identification and proof of employment.

The offer is good on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at select Alamo Drafthouse locations through the end of August. Unfortunately, this deal isn’t valid at all locations, so teachers should be sure to check with local cinemas before showing up.

The cinemas screen a combination of brand-new blockbusters, indie films, and old-school cult classics. And although the programming may be incentive enough to attend an Alamo Drafthouse showing, it’s the food and drink menu that tends to make people come back. The menu changes based on whatever’s showing at the theater — and it’s delivered directly to your seat.
