Went to see a movie here recently. The bar out front is handy for a drink if you arrive a bit early and the menu in the cinema is pretty good. Enjoyable spot to spend an evening.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is a different way to see a movie and enjoy dinner at the same time. The theaters open 30 minutes before the movie starts. You're seated in comfortable chairs with a table between each 2 chairs. The server greets you after...More

Such a fun theater! They always show the best movies-new and old. The vibe is great, the food is excellent, and they have an awesome selection of adult beverages as well. Highly recommend!!!

After our last movie-going experience at an AMC, sitting next to a couple who wouldn't shut the hell up, I was finally motivated to try Alamo Drafthouse. I heard they kick people out if they are talking. Yes sir. Gimme some of that. We went...More

An awful experience - not only are ticket prices higher than other movie houses, they've now added a $3.00 surcharge if you order your tickets on-line! The lobby area, which contains the bar, looks quite "seedy" for a theater that has recently opened! As for...More
