Nationwide, one-night only screenings on August 30th to celebrate the release of Mondo’s new PLANET OF THE APES deluxe soundtrack double LP. Exclusive T-shirt included with every ticket, plus other APES goodies for sale at participating locations.

Accept no sequels, knock offs, or re-boots, there’s nothing like the original PLANET OF THE APES. The all-conquering, ’68 simian sci-fi classic endures for a host of reasons: production design, makeup effects, brilliant script, Heston’s hairy chest and, of course, composer Jerry Goldsmith’s iconic score. To celebrate the release of Mondo’s new vinyl release of the APES score, the acclaimed collectible art boutique and Alamo Drafthouse will present PLANET OF THE APES in all its big screen glory for one night only on August 30 at Alamo locations nationwide.

APES fans rejoice, tickets to these screenings include an exclusive Mondo T-shirt featuring artwork by Jay Shaw that is guaranteed to be your go-to for the remainder of this election year.

Those who attend will, naturally, have first crack at purchasing an event exclusive version of the soundtrack, featuring gorgeous artwork by Matthew Woodson. Plus, they’ll also have a chance to get their stinking paws on other limited edition APES goodies from Mondo, including pins designed by Tom Whalen featuring Dr. Zaius, Cornelius, Ursus and “The Lawgiver” statue and a limited edition T-shirt designed by Eric Powell.

 

“PLANET OF THE APES is nearing its 50th birthday, and it’s just as important now as it was upon release in the ’60s,” says Mondo Music’s Mo Shafeek. “Like the best of science fiction cinema, its cautionary message of human nature still endures, whilst being an endlessly entertaining thrill ride. We are proud to celebrate the franchise, Jerry Goldsmith’s seminal score and presnt it on the big screen the way it was intended.”

PLANET OF THE APES items will be for sale inside Alamo Drafthouse lobbies before and after the screenings at participating locations.
