Alamo Drafthouse joins forces with Fandango!

Good news, everyone! We've partnered up with Fandango! In addition to still being able to purchase tickets on our website, you'll now be able to take care of all your ticketing needs with Fandango.

The online and mobile ticketing will cover first run films at all Alamo Drafthouse locations, as well as our special brand of signature programming, including Sing-Alongs, Quote-Alongs, Big Screen Classics, Terror Tuesdays, Weird Wednesdays, Films & Feasts, Live Score events and more. To celebrate the announcement Fandango & the Alamo Drafthouse will host a first-come, first-served party for festival badgeholders at SXSW!

“We’re ecstatic to partner with Fandango, the industry leader in online ticketing. Theatrical releases & our specialty programming can sell out days, even weeks in advance and sometimes after minutes of being available for purchase, so online and mobile ticketing is a huge part of our business. As we prepare to expand to Los Angeles, New York and other markets across the country, this Fandango partnership will be integral to reaching new moviegoers with easy access to advance ticketing,” said Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse CEO & Founder.

“Alamo Drafthouse Cinema deserves its acclaim as one of the most innovative exhibitors in the country,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Fandango. “We’re thrilled to work with Tim League and his Alamo team, as they’re constantly looking for new ways to redefine the cinema experience. They are all about providing showmanship for their customers, and we’re excited to help them make their screenings and events even more convenient, fun and memorable."

In an effort to provide unique editorial & promote the Alamo Drafthouse experience to their users, Fandango will begin a weekly  “Guide to the Alamo Drafthouse” highlighting special events and screenings so people will never miss out an opportunity to see “Robosaurus” before a TRANSFORMERS screening or paddle down a river in a canoe for an outdoor screening of DELIVERANCE!
