The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was founded in 1997 when a movie lover was not satisfied with the traditional movie experience. Tim League, the founder, created a “by fans for fans” movie theater in Austin with delicious food and great beer. Alamo Drafthouse creates a memorable experience for the movie lover and does not just give you a chair to watch a movie in front of a big screen. The Alamo Drafthouse goes above and beyond with themed meals to accompany the film or even a traveling roadshow that takes classic movies and puts them in their settings for people to be fully immersed in the movie. This will be one of the most memorable movie experiences of anyone’s life.

Today Alamo Drafthouse has dozens of locations all over the US. Their mix of Hollywood and independent movies make sure that there is a movie for everyone that can be enjoyed in the comfort and luxury of an Alamo Drafthouse. If you want a cozy night of watching a movie or two in Austin, there is no place better than this gem that is loved by locals and tourists alike.
