The World’s End isn’t even out yet but lucky for us, the Alamo Drafthouse Richardson (100 S. Central Expressway, Suite 14) doesn’t give a shit. They give so few shits they’re not even open themselves — they’re set to open August 9 — and they’re still going to screen the entire “Blood and Ice Cream” trilogy. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz will play on the big screens outside while The World’s End screens indoors with an intro and Q&A from Edgar White and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. But here’s a premature “A” for your “Q.” The name “Blood and Ice Cream” comes from the fact that in each film “the main character purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavor.” Keep that in mind as you suit up for the big, fat costume-themed screenings at 9 p.m. Thursday at Alamo Drafthouse. Visit drafthouse.com/dfw/richardson. The two outdoor screenings are open to everyone; tickets for the special screening must be won through Alamo.
