Welcome, winners!

The Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo gave 40 members of the public a sneak-preview tour last night.

Almost one full year after Rave Cityplace 14 closed its doors, the Kalamazoo Alamo Drafthouse Cinema welcomed a few dozen future patrons for a sneak-preview tour Monday night. The 40 winners were selected by Alamo management and John Liberty of the Kalamazoo Gazette/MLive.

Publicist Katie Kostrzeba and Alamo manager Brian Mills prepare the bar area for the guests.

Alamo chef Brandon Gillies begins preparing the snacks that will be served; they will give the winners a preview of the kinds of foods Alamo offers.

Brandon baked up a batch of crunchy pretzel bread to serve with Alamo's celebrated queso.

The winners began arriving around 5 p.m. Many of them noted how impressed they were with the way that the Alamo designers had retained some of the old Rave touches while giving the building a freshened-up look.
