What can you say about a movie theatre. You essentially know what to expect. Food is ok, not great. Seats ok but not great. Views of the screen are excellent.

Not sure what we are doing in the northern half of the country, but the idea of a movie and dinner seems to be the norm in Tx. The seats are comfortable, not over priced and a pleasant staff to accompany the excellent food. The chicken I had, almost made me forget I was there to watch a movie. The... More

I can't watch movies anywhere else now. SO many things to see. Not just new releases; Dance parties, Sing-A-longs, Weird Wednesday, Terror Tuesday... It's Awesome! Seats are comfortable, however depending on the theatre you may have to go under the table to get into your seat. Get there early to walk down the aisle if you're not so limber. Food,... More

Went to see Manchester By the Sea Saturday. I really like this Alamo but getting there is a pain. Not the closest to my house but they play movies I can't see at the Slaughter Alamo. They have a great beer selection and the Parmesan aioli fries are really good. They are a little overpriced and the wait staff can... More

Alamo Drafthouse has a great app where you buy tickets online and pick your seats. Food and drinks can be ordered in the theater and replenished during the showing. Further, the theaters are small so every seat is a great seat and rows are tiered well so, unless Shaquille O'Neil sits in front of you, no one's head should be... More

Went here for the Star Wars: Rogue One premiere. Got a cool glass for the event. The rules against no talking or cell phones make this a perfect theater. The ordering system is a little slow at times, but still really cool. The bowl of popcorn is HUGE so be prepared for that.

It is great to be at a movie theater where cell phones are not permitted. Using cell phones during movie viewing is disruptive and messes up the enjoyment. They have an excellent policy of not allowing them and acting when viewers insist on using them. My daughter got me wine and that was fun. The truffle pop corn is so... More

I love this movie house! A wonderful mix of eclectic and nostalgic in every sense. Great food and wait staff. Get there a little early to park and get inside as sometimes it is a little difficult finding a parking space on the lower levels depending on your particular show time. All in all though - I rate it a... More

No rushing dinner to make the movie. Menu items for carnivores and vegans alike. Much better than overly salted oversized bucket of popcorn and boxes of candy. Extra bonus they serve adult beverages. Fun evening and a standard stop when visiting family in Austin.
