The Alamo Drafthouse
Dinner, Drinks, Movies and Events all at the Same Place. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was founded in 1997 by Tim and Karrie League. It is considered one of the places you must go during a visit to Austin, whether its for one of their quote-a-longs, a newly-released feature, a festival, or an older film special showing.
Located in the Lamar Union complex in South Austin, the expanded Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar features three brand new auditoriums for a total of nine screens. Auditoriums range in size from 46 seats to 198 seats, with combined seating for 975 moviegoers. Newly built and now adjacent to the theater, The Highball features seven karaoke rooms, a ballroom dance floor and stage, a lounge area, and an outdoor patio. Guests will find free parking in Lamar Union's 576-space parking garage adjacent to the theater.
They have a few simple rules of etiquette:
*They don’t allow unaccompanied kids at movies and only allow babies at select “baby day” screenings.
*They have a zero-tolerance policy towards talking and texting during the movie. If you talk or text, you will receive one warning. If it happens again, you will be kicked out without a refund.
