DallasTheaterJones is proud to announce that we are partnering with the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas and Richardson, as well as Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center, for the Shakespeare 400 Film Series.

At the Alamo Dallas, there will be four films at 4 p.m. on Saturdays (except April 23) and at 7 or 9 p.m. on three Wednesdays (April 13, 20 and 27).
