ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE SOUTH LAMAR & THE HIGHBALL GRAND OPENING THIS SUMMER!

Alamo Drafthouse is pleased to announce that Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar and The Highball will celebrate their grand opening this summer in the newly redeveloped Lamar Union complex in South Austin.  The expanded Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar features three brand new auditoriums for a total of nine-screens.  Auditoriums range in size from 46 seats to 200 seats, with combined seating for over 900 moviegoers.  Newly built and now adjacent to the theater, The Highball bar will feature seven karaoke rooms, a ballroom with dance floor and stage, a lounge area, and an outdoor patio.  Parking will also be improved for guests with nearly 750 total retail parking spaces at Lamar Union, including a 576 space parking garage adjacent to the theater.

“I officed at South Lamar for years and had so many great memories at the Highball,” says Alamo founder and CEO Tim League.  “I’m very excited to have what feels like my home back up and running again.”

Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar’s nine screens will feature new release movies, family and independent films, as well as the Alamo’s unique signature repertory programming. Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with state-of-the-art Sony 4K digital projection and Dolby digital surround sound with select auditoriums also equipped for archival 35mm projection.

All seating is assigned and can be reserved at the time of ticket purchase online or in-person at the box office.  Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy Alamo’s pre-show entertainment of rare clips, videos, and shorts that are custom-curated to complement each feature film or event.

The Highball, rebuilt directly adjacent to the South Lamar theater, returns with its full service bar, uniquely themed karaoke rooms, dance floor, stage, and lounge area, along with its newest feature, a formal outdoor patio.  There will not, however, be bowling lanes at the new Highball.
