Hello Kansas City Missouri,
I wanted to personally update you on our remodeling plans for the official Grand Opening of the Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet. While we always expected the renovations of this magnificent theater to be a gradual process, due to circumstances beyond our control we won't have a certificate of occupancy during the next phase of construction. Therefore, we will close the doors to the Mainstreet beginning today and move forward with the planned renovations of the theaters, kitchen, and The Chesterfield bar all at once. This temporary closure will allow us to complete construction in just a few short weeks. We will be ready to open bigger and better than ever by November 15, allowing you to experience movie watching in the true Alamo style, with dine-in service, signature programming, and the best presentation in town in all six theaters. So while we would have preferred to keep the doors open during the remodel, this temporary closure will allow us to give you the full-blown Alamo Drafthouse experience sooner than expected.
Stay tuned to the blog and Facebook for details on the Grand Opening, and don't forget about the free outdoor Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow screenings of PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES and JURASSIC PARK coming up on October 12th and 13th. These events aren't affected by the theater's construction, so come out for an Alamo experience under the stars while we get the theater ready for Grand Opening.
