Tommy Swenson

Tommy is the programmer for the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz and works with the American Genre Film Archive. He saw his first film, SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, at the historic Blue Mouse Theater in Tacoma, WA. He went to one of those ridiculous alternative colleges that let him write papers on things like “Cinema, Modernity and the Second Law of Thermodynamics”. He has been a projectionist at the Grand Illusion Cinema and is a video store veteran, having done time at Austin’s Vulcan Video and Scarecrow Video in Seattle. Before becoming the Ritz programmer, Tommy was responsible for creating the Alamo Drafthouse’s preshow entertainment. All his possessions were purchased out of the back of comic books.
