Slaughter Lane Construction Update: Steady As She Goes

The theater is filling out nicely! Lots of progress since we saw it last!

Slaughter Lane Construction Update: Steady As She Goes

It's definitely been a little while since I've had time to drive over to Slaughter Lane and take some pictures. I was super impressed by what I saw today. First of all, I didn't have to hop a curb covered in a dirt mound in my little Camry this time. There's actually a legit driveway and HUGE parking lot now! My Camry thanked the folks who paved that area. 

This photo was taken from the Alamo roof. It doesn't give you the full scale, but I risked my life to take it! Really I'm just a total baby and climbed a very tall, wobbly ladder and thought to myself "please don't die, please don't die" - I did not die. 

The frames for the theaters are pretty much all in place and I got a really good idea of the layout this time around. Let's see if I can give you a decent photo tour through the miracle of photographs!

When you walk through the door, imagine a beautiful lobby with a bar in the middle (well, imagine that the hole in the ground is a bar). Behind that, a massive kitchen for all your pizza and burger eating needs!


To your left will be theaters 1 through 4, 5 through 8 will be on the right. Right now, they all look like this:


That was taken from the projection booth! It's not really a booth yet, but the windows into the theater are there:


Getting back down to ground level and stepping outside you can see that the building's facade looks really great, AND the outdoor patio for THE 400 RABBITS looks super inviting and ready to have me drink tequila on it


That's pretty much where we're at right now! It's looking like we're going to hit our "early 2012" deadline that we've mentioned before, but we won't have an ACTUAL opening date for a little longer. We're hoping to have some events leading up to opening night. When we get those scheduled we'll announce on all our channels, so stay tuned!
