Why Franchise?

People in Austin have long recognized that the experience we offer at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is unique. Now we want to share that quality experience with people all over the US.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has world-wide recognition as a leader in the cinema/dining concept.  In addition to the excellence that we strive for in food quality, service, film presentation and sound quality,  we have received kudos in national and international publications for the experience that we create with our no-talking policy and our pre-show philosophy.  In addition to that, we have become a household name amongst hard-core movie fans for our special event programming and unique events.

We are looking for partners who are experienced with the hospitality business, who understand and love what the Alamo does, and want to bring our brand of excellent food, service, film presentation and original programming to their region.  We want people who are passionate about creating the best and most entertaining night-out-at-the-movies that they can possibly provide, from the moment their customers walk in the door, to the moment they leave. We are looking for partners that have the ability and passion to take on an Area development.  Area developers can be granted the rights to a smaller area with 2 or 3 venues, up to a larger area that contains multiple states with multiple venues.
