OoB Roast of Tim League - 1446


The OOB Roast of Tim League is an evening of unmitigated attacks on one of Austin's most beloved entrepreneurs, without who, the city would not have the cultural touchstone that is the Alamo Drafthouse. He'll be surrounded by people he works with, who love and respect him, and who will have total freedom to tear him several new ones. This is gonna be FANTASTIC!

Tim League graduated from Rice University in 1992 with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Art/Art History. After a two-year stint at Shell Oil in Bakersfield, California, Tim turned his back on the engineering profession and opened up his first movie theater. An unmitigated financial disaster, the Tejon theater closed in 1995, and he and his wife Karrie loaded a truck with 200 seats, a projector, screen and speakers and headed to Austin to Start the Alamo Drafthouse, where he remains as CEO today.

League also co-founded Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the United States and has recently started a Drafthouse branded distribution label which released the critically acclaimed Jihadi-comedy FOUR LIONS in 2010. When asked about his early qualifications for opening a movie theater in the first place, 'none, other than really liking movies, which I guess is the most important part.'
