    Great Alamo... Just opened a strip of shops and restaurants across the theater.. Awesome places to chill while you wait...

    Always has been one of my favorite theaters for a lot of reasons. But this parking garage situation is a disaster site...

    Great for a night of movies and milkshakes. Rest of the menu is average.

    Arrive 30 mins before for amazing pre-shows. Write your order on the sheet of paper & place it standing up for your server to grab. Get some fried pickles with a scotch ale to go along with the movie

    I love the drafthouse. Preferred movie watching experience. Great food. Go early, the pre-rolls are amazing.

    Ok, again such good programming etc. But last two showings I've gone to at 10pm have been uncomfortably warm, lets just say my teabags were steeping. Not cute. Check the thermostat.

  • Michael T.

    Get the cookies and the hot pretzel! 😍

    Michael Turner · April 10

    Parking is not optimal so get there early and grab a drink at Highball as you let traffic get out of the parking lot after a movie.

    Usually amazing overall experience, great movies, great food and drink, but would it kill you Alamo, to buy the finer grain sandpaper to use in the toilet paper dispenser? Unwittingly exfoli_assed

    Awesome revamp of the old theater. Went there for a company even and we all received super quick and attentive service. Parking was tough but that's temporary.

    Alecia Wall · March 22
  • Conner D.

    Fried pickles for sure

    Conner Drew · March 20

    Write your order on a slip of paper, but remember to bring an empty bladder.

  • Eliot P.

    I was able to have chicken wings & a Guinness milk shake during a movie. What else could you ask for!

    Eliot Pardo · February 17
  • Colin

    Free parking in the nearby garage. Just be warned that it's a bit tight in there. And busy.

    Colin · February 14
  • Tyler J.

    Cookies and a glass of milk is all you need to enjoy a movie on a day off at this theater.

    Tyler Janik · January 29
  • Aires B.

    Awesome haven't been to one of theses in forever

    Aires Bankston · January 8

    CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER MILKSHAKE. (Espresso milkshake is delicious as well!)

    Adrian Patenaude · December 15, 2014
  • Andy W.

    Arguably the best movie theater I've been to in the US. Pre select seating, choice of great beers, and food delivered to your seat!

    Andy Wang · November 28, 2014
  • B W.

    Burger + milkshake + movie. Best theatre, very authentic.

    B W · November 26, 2014

    Buy your tickets in advance for Friday and Saturday shows.

    Friendly staff.

    Charles W Basden · October 25, 2014
  • Gina H.

    Free screenings have reserved seating. Arrive early, get your seats and then come back later for the show!

    Gina Hernandez · October 21, 2014
  • National Geographic Traveller (UK)

    Cinema, Austin-style. This Sixth Street institution is notorious for its gloriously silly special screenings, such as The Big Lebowski and Wayne’s World quote-a-longs, complete with comedy props. Read more

  • Daniel C.

    I really like their chicken wings. Also, #FantasticFest

    Daniel Cloud · September 25, 2014

    Una manera de ver diferente el cine. De poca madre.

    Highball, karaoke, karaoke party rooms and movies

    This place is cinephile heaven! The cinemas are small and intimate, the chairs are comfy and the food is great! Plus I love the vintage film posters that line the halls ❤️

    Movies, photo booth, foods

    Ask if Bruce Campbell will make a surprise appearance. . . There's always a chance!

    Nick Spannaus · August 24, 2014
  • Ana C.

    Milkshake and popcorn! #datenight @imadriansalas

    Ana Cvitanovic · August 23, 2014
  • Sven J.

    Parking closer to the elevators may be more helpful than parking on a lower floor.

    Sven Johnson · August 20, 2014
  • Eden P.

    Milkshakes are always good. I love the Chicken Caesar wrap.

    Eden Porter · August 15, 2014

    Magnificent decor!!!

    Bobby Muñoz Jr. · August 14, 2014

    Theatre opens back up again in three days. Soft open right now is going swimmingly. The south Lamar of old, with more screens!

    Matt Dailey · August 13, 2014
  • Zac S.

    Might be hard to get to during SX, but worth going to for dinner and a film.

    Zac Snider · January 2, 2013
  • Celeste M.

    Best theater this side of The Parlor.

    Celeste Mckeon · December 30, 2012

    Les Misarables, Humus, and Malbec !

  • Jess P.

    The green chili Mac and cheese is great but very spicy, which wouldn't be a "but" except that its dark & you can't see what you're eating & there's a giant pile of roasted green chilies.

    Jess Pendleton · December 20, 2012
  • Social N.

    This place is a treat anytime, but check it out when big movies are coming out. They usually have special menu items that have to do with the movie, like butterbeer for Harry Potter.

  • Haley M.

    The fresh baked chocolate chip cookies will not leave you wanting. Crispy outside gooey inside. Perfect treat. Order them. Now.

    Haley McMichael · October 16, 2012
  • kate

    get some warm, melty, crispy-edged chocolate chip cookies delivered to you halfway through the movie.

    As a chubby person, I have three words: Peanut Butter Banana Cookies. Okay, that's four.

    Neil Miller · September 22, 2012
  • Elizabeth C.

    Never underestimate the powers of a glass of red wine and box of peanut butter cups during a funny movie.

    Elizabeth Campbell · August 5, 2012
  • Joie Rey C.

    Make sure you ask if yout movie is sewted already, or you'll get the crappiest seats, if you get seats at all.

    Joie Rey Cohen · July 28, 2012
  • SundanceTV

    Great food & drinks brought to my seat by friendly and swift waitstaff, awesome programing, and a strict no-talking/no-texting/no-cell phones/no kids under a certain age.

    SundanceTV · July 13, 2012
  • David S.

    An absolute gem just like all the draft houses. Plus, the spaceships inside and "You're Next" mural all the outside wall is are alone worth the price of admission.

    David Self · July 7, 2012
  • Steve G.

    That smell is your date.
