I have been to this theater 3 times i am now just writing my review this place is awsome. I cant beleive they have such reasonable prices. Candy and popcors are priced as a regular theater but with the savings its totally worth the price. Great place very clean also.

Bought tickets, discovered that individual numbered seats are assigned. We were close to movie starting time, only front row seats were available. There was no menu in the table in front of us. Got one from an empty table next to us. Had to use cell phone light when previews started. It took a long time for the milkshake to... More

Now a budget theater not Alamo anymore ($2-3 per show) very clean for what I'm used to in a budget theater. Eat before coming, or you will pay the ticket difference in concessions, higher than a normal theater. Real nice staff, clean digs.

We love watching movies at the Alamo Drafthouse because instead of showing boring corporate commercials before the movie starts, they play funny interesting videos of random stuff. Also the food and drinks are delicious. Try the fried pickles and brown sugar lemonade

I love the fact that you can eat/ watch a movie. I used to love the Sangria but they have changed the recipe and I won't order it anymore. It's super fizzy now and watered down. It does offer nice seating and average food. Service is pretty good too.

I only go to Alamo Draft House now for all my movies. Each seat is assigned at purchase so you choose your seat and don't have to get there early to find seats together But the best thing is each seat has a little table and you can order great food from a menu including salads, pizza, appetizers and burgers....

Seriously, refillable sodas for $4, yes! I took my teen to see a movie one Sat matinee. We had a fantastic time. We ate mozzarella sticks, pizza and a giant pretzel. Food was good, and I got some quality time with my teen. That in itself made the experience great. Our server was timely and friendly. I like that there... More

We went to a 10:30 am Sunday showing. Ordered Migas and waited and waited and waited. Food showed up an hour into the film. I could never catch one of the waiters that went by...even with the menu card standing up in the box. The Migas were baked in a small cast iron skillet, and tasted like it. Next time... More

Got tickets online for The Interview before it was announced to be available VOD. It was still a food call to see it in a theater and the food at this location was pretty good. The Green Chili Cheeseburger had plenty of flavor and served with tasty French fries. Others had a Carnivore Pizza, fried pickles, popcorn, etc. Everyone enjoyed... More

Great concept and if your expectations are reasonable, you shouldn't be disappointed. Didn't think the food was exceptional, personally I was disappointed with the pizzas. Good crust but something else was wrong. It was too dark to tell. I don't enjoy eating in the dark but that's personal opinion. The front row in our theater was TOO CLOSE, don't fall... More
