Alamo Drafthouse Cinema provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant. First-run and independent films are shown, along with special event programming. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema also features an extensive made from scratch menu in state-of-the-art culinary kitchens. Guests order from servers who quietly serve them throughout the movie.
