We can now annouce that we are slated to open in early 2012. True, it's not a solid date yet, but it's the little things that count!
We've got more details for you too:
This will an 8-screen theater with seating for over 800 moviegoers!
Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with state of the art Sony 4K projectors and Real D 3D projection as well as excellent screen size to room ratio and amazing sound.
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.
One of the auditoriums will also be a “microcinema” with just 34 seats but still a very large screen. This room is perfect to support more niche films and will also be available to rent for private parties, screenings and meetings.
The theater will also feature ample bike racks for neighbors who are close enough not to drive.
In addition to The 400 Rabbits space, the Alamo Slaughter Lane will feature an R&D food lab, which will be the test kitchen for all Alamo locations. Executive Chef John Bullington will spend time in the kitchen at this new location testing new menu items, specials and a host of mini-feasts. This new location will have an array of new offerings and we plan to engage guests in their feedback on future menu selections.
“People are talking about the national expansion of the Alamo, and while we're excited about those opportunities Karrie and I have long declared that Austin will always be our home. We're excited to be expanding our locations inside the great city of Austin even while there's so much buzz about possible sites outside of Texas,” said Tim League, CEO/Founder of Alamo Drafthouse.
