Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Inspirations Of Prey' Film Series

Arkane Studios' upcoming sci-fi game Prey is weird in all the right ways, with bizarre aliens, manipulated reality, and the oft-publicized ability to transform into a coffee cup (or teapot, or toilet paper). It wasn't developed in a vacuum, of course, and publisher Bethesda is working with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas to set up a mini sci-fi film festival to screen some of the films that inspired the game's creation.

Starting April 4 through April 27, the theater chain will be screening four movies: MOON, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, and The Matrix at theaters nationwide. You can watch them a la carte, or buy tickets for four screenings and get an exclusive Prey poster. Take a look at the official site for locations and more information on the screenings.

Bethesda is bringing the game along to special events at its Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York screenings, where players can check out the game and enter to win a special Prey-themed PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. You can RSVP to those free events here.

Our Take
Even if you're not interested in the game, being able to check out some of those movies on the big screen might be worth a trip.
