    Great selection of indie movies including out there compilations and re-releases of classics. Extensive menu and great service.

    Hiliary O'Neill · October 8
  • Sven J.

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

    Sven Johnson · September 24
  • Jenn T.

    They played such awesome music here. Great vibe.

  • Sarah O.

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

    Sarah Odom · September 6
  • Nick S.

    Best movie theatre in America and best location in the atx

    Nick Scott · September 3
  • Steve H.

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

    Steve Hill · August 27
  • Giuliana B.

    Milkshakes, food, service

    Giuliana Besa · August 26
  • Stephen M.

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

    Stephen Moursund · August 22
  • Jacobo G.

    A movie theater that is the way movie theaters should be. Great experience

    Jacobo Gómez · August 17
  • Liana C.

    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.

    Liana Casciani · August 14
  • Kat W.

    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.

    Kat W. · August 13
  • Cody B.

    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.

  • Dianey S.

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

    Dianey Sandoval · July 25
  • Madeline V.

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

    Madeline Vu · June 14
  • Mark B.

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

    Mark Brady · June 7
  • Adrian P.

    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

    Adrian Phillips · May 14
  • James O.

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

    James Ochoa · May 13
  • Roland S.

    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.

    Roland Suarez · April 18
  • Michael T.

    Get the cookies and the hot pretzel! 😍

    Michael Turner · April 10
  • Sara

    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.

    Sara · April 5
  • Roland S.

    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

  • Alecia W.

    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
  • Nathan S.

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

    Nathan Swartz · February 24
  • 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
  • Adrian P.

    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

  • 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

    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

    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 ❤️

    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
  • Bobby M.

    Magnificent decor!!!

    Bobby Muñoz Jr. · August 14, 2014
  • Matt D.

    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.
