Alamo Drafthouse

I love the Alamo Drafthouse. I have never been but how can you not love a theater that takes movies this seriously. My sister-in-law currently resides in Austin and regularly attends. My youngest daughter has been there and the other week my wife went out to visit and caught Captain Phillips.

Alamo Drafthouse


She brought me home the monthly in-house magazine, Birth. Movies. Death.

Birth. Movies. Death.


Apparently November is Tough Ladies Month. Girlie Night will feature Nine to Five. Aliens will be shown in a 70mm print. They will have a Pulp Fiction quote-along (with a Jackrabbit Slim’s dance off). They will also feature Bonnie and Clyde, Coal Miner’s Daughter, Gilda, Fargo, The Lady Eve, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and To Kill a Mockingbird. All this in addition to showing first-run movies.

They also have Afternoon Tea! – “Your ticket to the screening includes a delicious plate of British sweets and savories plus three courses of premium organic tea provided by Austin’s own Zhi Tea!”. This month’s Tea feature is Elizabeth.

They have so many special features that if I lived in Austin, I would just arrange for my check to be direct deposited into their account. On the other hand it’s hard to hold a job if you never leave the theater. Oh except working at the theater. I wonder if Alamo is hiring?
