    I tend to order beers when coming here for movies but the margarita I got at yesterday's Dr strong showing was amazingly strong without being overpowering 😍

    The parking is great but the service was not. Disappointing compared to other Alamos.

    Great movie theater. Vox table is right opposite if you want dinner then a movie. The village location is still my favorite though.

    The same holder that holds order slips behind the shelf also holds the menus too. Figure this out and you'll never look foolish.

    Since the remodel, it's been much easier to go here because the parking garage helped ease parking worries. Grab a beer before the show!

    Most of the Drafthouse Recommends movies get premiered here, and most of the live events are here as well.

    They take food orders inside movie theater and you will get lots of disturbances while watching a movie.

    How about taking the stairs? It's faster than the elevator.

    God forbid you've never been to one of these theaters before. They'll act like you're an idiot.

    Just valet it and leave a tip, parking can take 10-15 minutes as the garage is tight and generally crowded

    Seasonal beer selections are great for something new, never been burned drinking a feature beer I hadn't heard of.

    Recently renovated and SO amazing. I can't wait to take everyone who visits me here. By far the coolest theater I've been to.

    I love Alamo Drafthouse, but the bench style tables at S. Lamar are a drag. It's hard for people to get in/out before the movie and during. Not sure why they didn't modernize it during the renovation.

    If you're not from Austin, or have never been to an Alamo Drafthouse, prepare to have your socks blown off. Fantastic moviegoing experience. Come early, have a few drinks, watch happily.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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!

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

    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
