The Alamo Drafthouse aims to make going to the movies fun again. And, on May 3, Loudoun County will be able to experience this firsthand. Almost 800 seats will be waiting for you at this first location to open in the new One Loudoun community. For those unfamiliar, The Alamo Drafthouse offers full in-theater restaurant service and features stand alone bar, GLASS HALF FULL. The Alamo Drafthouse shows the very best in new releases and repertory programing, paired a wide selection of craft beers and delicious made-from-scratch food.
Hollywood is about to unleash all of their huge summer releases, and we'll be kicking off our Grand Opening with a quiet, little movie called IRON MAN 3. As well as screening all the best summer movies with awesome food and beer, we also offer state-of-the-art digital projection from Sony 4K projectors, crystal clear 7.1 audio, and incredibly comfortable leather seats. But, that's not all. We also use all of these wonderful toys to present special one-of-a-kind events based around classic movies, both new and old.
We have amazing, passionate movie programmers who dream up these events that take the movies you love to a whole new level. Need an adrenaline rush? Check out Tough Guy Cinema, the manliest of shows featuring the biggest action scenes -- and loaded with props and in-house pyrotechnics. Need a break from the machismo to show off your new manicure? Come for Girlie Night, the best movies to provide a laugh, a sigh, and maybe even a few tears. Big Screen Classics brings back larger-than-life favorites from Hollywood's Golden Age and more. Crowd-pleasing Quote-Alongs and Sing-Alongs are a lot like doing karaoke, only better. All the best lines from your favorite movies and all song lyrics from the tunes you love are displayed up on the screen for you to join in with the fun. Plus, many of our events feature exclusive drink specials -- abide with The Dude's White Russian or a sip on refined tea at PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.
However, we go far beyond drinks. Our Food & Film events are the stuff movie lover's dreams are made of, where big screen favorites are served up with hand-crafted dishes perfectly paired to the film. Perennial favorites include the heroic all-day gorge that is THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY Feast, a seven course, 12-hour event; the exotic Moroccan Feast paired with CASABLANCA; and the three-course GROUNDHOG'S DAY dinner centered around a key ingredient that never gets old (no matter how long you're stuck in Punxsutawney): PIE. We also feature three-course Dinner Party presentations of various new releases throughout the year.
At the Alamo Drafthouse, all seating is assigned and can be reserved at the time of ticket purchase online or in-person at the box office. We encourage you to arrive early to check out the full menu and enjoy Alamo’s ad-free pre-show entertainment of rare clips, videos, and shorts that are custom-curated to complement each feature film or event. Our mission is to protect the sanctity of the movie watching experience with a Zero Tolerance policy towards disruptive behavior such as talking or texting during the film. Sometimes, this can upset the offending talker or texter. Ask Anderson Cooper about the full story.
We are now accepting applications for kitchen staff, bartenders and servers. Employment applications can be downloaded here. We will announce more Grand Opening details and more hiring information on our Facebook and Twitter.
