‘Alamo for All’ Sensory Friendly screenings are every Tuesday for all shows prior to 2:05pm and select weekend matinees. ‘Alamo for All’ screenings are open to all ages, including infants. In these specially designated screenings the house lights are left a little brighter and the sound is turned down a little lower. The feature film will run without the Alamo Drafthouse’s signature preshow and without trailers. Moving around the theater and noise will be allowed. Alamo Drafthouse’s normally strict rule against latecomers will also be relaxed at these screenings. The use of cell phones or other devices, however, will still be discouraged. For a listing of ‘Alamo for All’ screenings, please visit drafthouse.com/alamoforall
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.
No Latecomers Policy
Guests cannot enter the theater after the movie has begun. This means when the feature begins, so you can still come in while our ad tape and trailers are playing. The reason for this policy is to preserve the movie watching experience with minimal interruptions, much like our no talking and texting policy. If you show up to your desired screening late we will happily give you a full refund or exchange your ticket for a different show.
