Mark your calendars! We are thrilled to announce the official grand opening on August 5th of New York's first Alamo Drafthouse located on 2548 Central Park Avenue in Yonkers!
Starting in August, our six screens will be showing an exciting mix of new release, family and independent films, as well as the our unique signature classic and interactive events. Our auditoriums will be equipped with the highest quality Sony 4k digital projection (hear Tim's thoughts on Sonky 4k here), equipped for both high-frame-rate and RealD 3D presentations. State-of-the-art bi-amplified QSC digital audio systems provide full range multi-channel fidelity for faithful reproduction of audio soundtracks. In addition to superior AV equipment, the layout of each auditorium has eliminated the traditional front row, ensuring there is no bad seat in the house (and room for in-theater parties!). Plus, our online reserved seating in all auditoriums allows you to avoid lines and always choose your favorite seat!
Dine-in service is available in each auditorium. Our menu will include signature favorites such as fresh baked pizzas, eight different burgers, and baked-to-order warm cookies. We are also proud to have chef Lupe on our team. The menu will also feature seasonal local specials and, whenever possible, utilize locally sourced ingredients. Additionally, the theater will feature an extensive selection of wines and craft beers, including 32 beers on tap. Half of the taps will feature local brewers, including rotating selections from Yonkers Brewing, Captain Lawrence and more.
"Alamo is known for offering amazing beers with a focus on local brews, and it was a real challenge trying to pick from all the great beers out there," says General Manager Doug Bowmen. "In creating this list we tried to find a balance between beers people know and love with less familiar offerings. The one thing they all have in common is that they're great beers." We are bringing additional jobs to Yonkers, hiring over 100 employees locally and currently accepting applications for managers, kitchen staff, bartenders and servers. Employment applications can be downloaded here.
