10th Anniversary National Event


Livestreamed Q&A with director Mike Judge, star Maya Rudolph, and others!



Reunion of Cast & Filmmakers to Mark the 10th Anniversary of IDIOCRACY with Screenings Nationwide, Worldwide Livestream Q&A and Voter Registration Drive


Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world. In this future, America was run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called “Ow My Balls.” Flash forward to today. We are approaching the end of the most bizarre, absurdist presidential race in U.S. history. Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether IDIOCRACY was actually a documentary. Mike Judge’s sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation.


The Alamo Drafthouse, along with the network of Art House Convergence Theaters and local League of Women Voters chapters, want to invite everyone to revisit and rediscover IDIOCRACY on the eve of the 2016 presidential election. Questions will be taken from the live audience in Santa Monica, but also from the live-stream and Facebook Live audiences via Twitter using the hashtag #IdiocracyToday.


A portion of proceeds from this screening will be donated to the local League of Women Voters chapter to support their non-partisan efforts to register and educate voters.  Whether you are voting for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, or whether you just want to cast a write-in vote for Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, these options are all your right -- but first you must register to vote! (2006, 84 min., color, DCP / Director: Mike Judge / Cast: Maya Rudolph, Luke Wilson, Dax Shepard, Terry Crews)


“If we learn one thing from this election cycle,” says Alamo Founder and CEO Tim League, “it’s that to truly be an American one must register to vote, join the debate and participate in democracy.”
