The Alamo Drafthouse originally opened its doors to anime in 2000 with the screening of Samurai X in Austin. Since then, Anime at the Alamo became a permanent staple at the West Oaks in Houston and Westlakes in San Antonio every week under sponsorship of ADV Films and the guidance of Rommel Salandanan of activeAnime.com. In 2008, Anime at the Alamo welcomed FUNimation Entertainment as a new sponsor of the event.
Anime at the Alamo continues to get stronger each year as fans keeps clamoring for new anime titles every week! Oh, don’t forget about the giveaway at the end of each screening!
