Alamo Drafthouse Cinema
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema began in the heart of Texas in 1997. It is a food franchise that features a unique combination of movie theater and restaurant. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema franchise shows the best first-run and independent films and offers an extensive menu of fresh, handmade dishes and a wide selection of beer and wine.
Imagine a traditional movie theater where rows of seats alternate with bench-style tables. Once seated, customers order from a menu that offers hamburgers, fresh salads and pizza, as well as beer and wine. A friendly wait staff takes their orders and brings the food to their seats. Customers can continue to order during the movie by writing their request on paper and attaching it to clips on their table. The waiters quietly collect and deliver these orders without distracting from the movie. In addition to offering this comfortable, full-service environment, the Alamo is recognized worldwide for its eclectic programming, award-winning food, and one-of-a-kind special events. Everyone who visits the Alamo agrees: It’s not just a movie, it’s an experience.
