Announcing Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Second North Texas Location!

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to unveil its plans for its second location in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. The eight-screen theater, and Glass Half Full bar, will be owned and operated by Two is One, One is None LLC, the DFW franchise partner of the Alamo Drafthouse. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will become a part of the Southside  Lamar  District in Dallas joining the NYLO Hotel, The Cedars Social, SODA bar, Gilley’s, Full Circle Tavern, Southside Ballroom, Terrace Bistro, Opening Bell Coffee Shop, Poor David's Pub and Bill’s Records.  The theater will open mid-2015 at the Southwest corner of South Lamar and Cadiz Streets in Dallas, TX, halfway between the new Omni Dallas and the award-winning Southside On Lamar.

Alamo Drafthouse Dallas will feature eight screens of new releases, repertory programming and the Alamo’s unique signature programming with seating for just under 1000 moviegoers.  Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with state of the art digital projection and sound.  Alamo Drafthouse Dallas will also be equipped for 35mm projection.  In addition to the superior AV equipment, the layout of each screening room will eliminate the traditional front row, ensuring every seat in the house allows for a great viewing experience.

In addition to in-theater dining Alamo Dallas will feature a second floor Glass Half Full Taproom and two patios with views of downtown.  The Glass Half Full Taproom and patios will have seating for 200 people and feature an extensive menu of 32 craft beers on tap; over 35 bottled beers, wine, cocktails and freshly made food.  The lounge will offer patrons an inviting place to socialize whether they are waiting for a movie or simply coming to sample the scratch-made food, cocktails and local craft beer.  Antique brick salvaged from other buildings in the Southside area will be used both inside and outside the theater as homage to the great history in downtown Dallas.  The theater is expected to open in mid 2015.  Look for updates on Facebook, Twitter and our blog.
