SYFY and ATX Television Festival invite you to join us on January 9th for a Premiere Screening Event of SYFY’s new original series DEADLY CLASS. Stop by early for a Pre-Reception at The Highball, then stick around for the screening of the pilot episode with special food, drinks, and swag provided by SYFY! (Trust us — this is one to catch on the big screen.)

About the Show
Based on the hit graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, and executive produced by the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War), DEADLY CLASS follows Marcus, a disillusioned teen recruited into an elite private academy where the world’s top crime families send their successors. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal. Set against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, DEADLY CLASS is a coming of age story unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

5:00pm – Pre-Reception in The Highball
7:00pm – DEADLY CLASS Premiere Screening Event at Alamo South Lamar

Reserve your seat with a $5 food & beverage voucher applicable towards any item on the Alamo Drafthouse menu purchased inside the theater.
