Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

Alamo Drafthouse Brings About the Robopocalypse!

Forbidden Planet Robbie the Robot Leslie NielsonThis has nothing to do with the book ROBOPOCALYPSE by Daniel H. Wilson. This, instead, has to do with Alamo Drafthouse finally opening their doors, in what the industry calls a “soft opening,” meaning no fan-fare, just open the doors like we’ve always been here. On August 8, 2013, you will be able to select from robot-themed movies or at least movies that have robots in them. From the usual TRANSFORMERS – THE MOVIE  to the new ELYSIUM, you have quite a selection. But there are three that I’m pretty wild about.

My friends, Les and Thomas from THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE GEEKS, will be joining me as we partake in a classic from 1956 called FORBIDDEN PLANET. Later that day, LOGAN’S RUN with Michael York will be screened and an under-the-radar favorite of mine is one called ROBOT JOX. Check out the link below and tell me, which movie will you be enjoying?!
