Admission & Policies
General Admission to the Alamo Drafthouse is $10.00 for all shows after 6pm Monday - Thursday ($13 for 3D) and $10.50 for all shows after 6pm Friday - Sunday ($13.50 for 3D). Special programming ticket prices do vary, so check the individual show listing for details. We offer a discounted ticket price on site at the box office of $8 for regular shows and $11 for 3-D shows for children (6-11), seniors (60+), college students, military personnel. All shows before 6pm are matinee price of $8, matinee 3D tickets are $11.
The Alamo Drafthouse Theater box office opens 45 minutes before all scheduled show times. Patrons are welcome to enjoy drinks and appetizers before the film. A rotating program of vintage cartoons and shorts play before the film. Advance tickets are available online for all shows.
No tickets will be sold to any show that has been playing for more than 15 minutes. If a guest shows up that already has tickets to a movie but they are over 15 minutes late, the decision about whether or not the guest will be allowed into the film will be made at the discretion of the manager. Ultimately, it will come down to whether or not the late admission will distract from the experience of the guests already in the theater. If the manager does make the decision to allow the guest into the theater, they will be escorted to their seat by a member of the theater's staff.
As a retailer of alcohol, long guns and unlicensed guns are prohibited on our property under the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission rules. Only concealed licensed handguns are allowed on our property.

Bought a ticket to an Alamo for All show by mistake? No problem! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be glad to refund or exchange your ticket for another show.
Smoking is not permitted at the Alamo -- this includes the use of electronic cigarettes. Absolutely NO smoking or "vaping" anywhere on the premises, including the lobbies, hallways, restrooms, or bar areas -- but especially not in any of our theaters.
All patrons must be 18 years or older or be accompanied by a parent. For certain select shows the age polices may vary, but children must always be accompanied by a parent. For details about the age policy for a specific show, please check the show description page.
Full Reserved Seating
All seats are reserved. This is a ‘pick your seat’ model and the seats will be held for you up until show time. We still recommend you arrive early enough to find your seat with the lights up (typically 30 minutes before show time). We also play custom preshows before all films so you’ll want to be here early for that! Plus, there’s no onscreen advertising. But, with reserved seating, the seat you bought is yours and there’s no reason to get in line or show up early to guarantee your seat.
No Texting, Talking, Cell Phone Policy
One of the things that makes Alamo a great place to watch movies is our enforcement of the ‘rules for watching movies.’ In other words, we don’t tolerate disruptive behavior in the theaters and we’ve received a lot of press and accolades for our adherence to this position. If you are a person who likes to talk, text or use your cell phone during a movie, we are not the place for you! If on the other hand, you crave a great movie watching experience free from interruptions, please join us! We position ourselves as a theater that takes extreme pride in providing an excellent and undisturbed movie watching experience. If you are a movie lover, you can expect a great environment at our theaters, free from talkers, texters, cell phone users or disruptive behavior. We enforce the policy with pride and people who disrupt other patrons will be ejected from the theater. Should you find this policy being broken, please help us and raise an order card to alert the staff and management about a disruptive patron. Management will handle the problem and we appreciate your help in keeping our great environment in tact! Also, no recording, video or audio, is permitted in any theaters at any time.
