OUR COMMUNITY APPROACH

From the very beginning, Tim and Karrie League envisioned Alamo Drafthouse Cinema as a neighborhood theater that brings the surrounding community together. As we've grown to a national company with over 25 locations, this remains one of our core values. Through all of our work, we seek to support organizations making a positive difference in our local communities, foster a love of film and cinema, and support our team members in donating their time and talents.

Above all, we want to thank all of our guests, fans and supporters - we simply couldn't have this impact without you.

Please note, due to our busy holiday season, we have closed out our donations for the remainder of the year. We will resume accepting donation requests on January 1.

Community Priorities

  • Education


    We support education through screening series like PBS KIDS, donating movie passes as incentives for students, and offering fundraising events for schools.

  • Access


    A trip to the movies should be accessible for everyone, so we offer open-caption and Alamo for All sensory-friendly screenings, discounted tickets for teens, and low-cost Kids Camp screenings for families.

  • Basic Needs


    We host clothing and food drives at our venues and support innovative nonprofits working to house the homeless. We also have a Family Fund to help Alamo team members in need.

  • Film


    We support film preservation through AGFA and arthouse cinema through Arthouse Convergence. We also offer discounts to independent filmmakers and frequently host youth filmmaker events.

  • Sustainability


    We strive to conserve resources through reusable food and beverage containers and by recycling and composting whenever possible. We partner with local breweries and use seasonal ingredients in our menu items.

  • Civic Engagement


    We offer our theaters for non-partisan community forums and issue-related screenings and discussions. We also partner with groups like the League of Women Voters to register new voters at our venues.

What Our Partners Are Saying

Something Weird is thrilled to be working with AGFA / Alamo Drafthouse. And I truly believe that Mike Vraney would be pleased with this collaboration knowing that the lost films he rescued from the scrap heap will be forever preserved and shown theatrically to new audiences. Lisa Petrucci, Something Weird
Students in our Film camps are intense young film fans, and Alamo's commitment to teaching the value of classic cinema and 35mm film preservation gives them knowledge they really can't get anywhere else. Our students were wide-eyed and wondrous when they were able to see their vision on the big beautiful Alamo screen. Marcelo Teson, Creative Action Youth Film Collective
