We were never great at farewells. Alamo Drafthouse - West Oaks will close its doors Monday, June 25

The Alamo Drafthouse – West Oaks opened its doors in May of 2003. In the nearly ten years that we’ve served the community, it has been our extreme pleasure to be a haven for movie lovers for the greater Houston area. From incredible films to unique events, great special guests and a massive amount of amazing beer, it has been a spectacular run. The time has come, though, for us to close the doors at our location in the West Oaks Mall. But, like the fabled Hydra, if you cut off one of our heads, two more shall take its place.

Weird Wednesdays is coming to Houston! Are you ready?

Wednesdays at Mason Park are about to get a little weird. Beginning June 6, Mason Park will host the revival of the Weird Wednesday series in Houston. Curated by Lars Nilsen, Weird Wednesday is a weekly film program featuring a wide assortment of film classics forgotten by most of society. Ranging from exploitation to horror to science-fiction to action and featuring everything in between, each title in the Weird Wednesday series represents a trip through the dark recesses of celluloid history. Long the vanguard of cinema exploration in Austin, Weird Wednesdays is finally coming back to Houston.
