We're celebrating the most cinematic of liquors with a series devoted to it! Our first pick: John Carpenter's The Thing. Each ticket includes a glass of J&B Whiskey, MacReady's preferred drink!

Why is J&B Whiskey featured in so many movies? Rumor has it that it was Truman Capote's drink of choice and that he demanded it be visible in the film adaptation of his Breakfast at Tiffany's and it took off from there. Others claim giallo directors picked it for its cosmopolitan connotations and its popularity among the Italian-American «rat-pack.» Whatever the case may be, it is omnipresent in great films, and that is reason enough to show off both the liquor and the films.

It’s the first week of winter in 1982. An American Research Base is greeted by an alien force that can assimilate anything it touches. It’s up to the members to stay alive, and be sure of who is human, and who has become one of the Things. Watch as MacReady (Kurt Russell) relishes a bottle of J&B and pours another on a chess machine.

Dir. John Carpenter. 1982. 109 min.

Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink.
