At Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh, the show starts before the movie even begins! Our theaters open 30 minutes before the movie’s scheduled start time. This is not only for our guests to get a head start on ordering exceptionally crafted food, beer, cocktails, & milkshakes, but also so guests can enjoy Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s unique “pre-show”. These pre-shows are 30 minutes of curated clips focused around the film our guests are about to watch. While Alamo Drafthouse servers love to get you started with food and drink during the pre-show, don’t worry, we take orders throughout the movie without the guest having to leave the comfort of their reclining- cushioned seat.
If that wasn’t enough, guests of Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh can enjoy the full dining menu, wine, craft cocktails, and over 50 well-curated North Carolina draft beers, not only in the theater itself, but also in its one-of-a-kind lobby bar: Video Vortex. What makes Video Vortex unique? Well, do you know of any other craft bar embedded in a video store full of rentable 1980’s VHS tapes that have not seen the light of day, since you, or your parents, spun a Rubik’s cube? We didn’t think so. You do now. Choose from over 30,000+ titles across all spectrums of movie tastes. Concerned your newer TV can’t accept a classic VCR player, no worries, Video Vortex will also provide an HDMI to RCA adapter, free of charge. Get a take-home bottle or Crowler from the lobby bottle shop. Eat and Drink in Video Vortex. The point is, visit before your movie, after your movie, or anytime. Just follow the rules...Be Kind Unwind.
Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh features 11 screens on which we display, with the highest quality laser projectors, everything from big budget smash-em-ups to art house independent films. Our state of the art QSC digital audio systems makes the listening as precise as the viewing. Also, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema frequently creates special limited release movie-themed menus. These movie-specific themed foods and drinks make a children’s movie extra special or add even more atmosphere to the new thriller our guests are watching. On top of that, what really gets our fans going is Alamo’s superb repertory program. Whether it be old, new, serious, fun, arty or party…. we’ll show films, and have events, that make you love some Alamo.
Order your reserved seating tickets in advance online or simply buy them in the theater lobby. Alamo Drafthouse provides Closed Captioning services for the majority of its regular movie screenings. However, some special events utilize film formats - like 35mm - that often do not allow for caption services.
