Construction Update: Finishing Touches

We are down to the finishing touches at the newest theater in the Alamo Drafthouse family! One by one our seven theaters are being finished out with wall to wall screens, tech sound and a seating scheme that will allow you to stretch out, place your brew and fried pickles at arms length and seriously enjoy the best movie watching experience that the Alamo has to offer. 

Our largest theater will seat 204 and our smallest will seat an intimate grioup of just 46. To make sure every seat in the house produces an awesome movie watching experience, we optioned for the non-sardine can theater layout and are building all roomy theaters where even the front row experience is worth writing home about. Our theater will be the first upstairs Alamo kitchen model. Yes, very cool... but what does this mean to you? Servers will sneak your food and beverages from back theater entrances that link to an enormous kitchen which is at the center of a large unseen world; there will be no servers in the hallways or lobby with food trays, we dare you to find one of our ninjas with this new layout!

Now onto the details you really need, beer and cocktails. We have spared no expense to create a bar that will stand alone on its own merits. Our bar provides a cozy atmosphere with it’s copper ceiling tiles, reclaimed barn wood and barrel top wall decor. As attested by the guy that delivered them in the old pickup truck, these are geniune used barrel tops.

The carpet is being rolled out, the finishes in the lobby are being finalized, the throwback neon signage is up and we are are getting close to hiring our future family of servers and runners. It’s a good feeling to be in Colorado.
