Butt-Numb-A-Thon: ThirTEEN WOLF, aka BNAT13WOLF (2011)[edit]

Dec. 10-11, 2011; Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar Austin, Texas

The name derives from the long-standing tradition of playing the 1985 movie Teen Wolf at BNAT, only to have the film burn or be destroyed before any significant portion is screened. Tim League, founder and CEO of the Alamo Drafthouse told Jeff Mahler (a longtime BNAT attendee whose love for Teen Wolf inspired its unsuccessful inclusion in the festival each year) that the film would be screened at BNAT13WOLF, but that due to scheduling demands the pristine 35mm print film they had found had to be cut into "literally thousands of pieces" and edited into the program whenever time was available. Clips that highlighted the entirety of Teen Wolf were then inserted into the sequences of themed trailers that preceded all of the feature films. The actual clips were in extremely small segments of less than two seconds each. Most often they were only a few frames in length - a hilarious image from the movie popping up and disappearing in a flash.
