The Alamo Drafthouse – West Oaks opened its doors in May of 2003. In the nearly ten years that we’ve served the community, it has been our extreme pleasure to be a haven for movie lovers for the greater Houston area. From incredible films to unique events, great special guests and a massive amount of amazing beer, it has been a spectacular run. The time has come, though, for us to close the doors at our location in the West Oaks Mall. But, like the fabled Hydra, if you cut off one of our heads, two more shall take its place.

The Alamo Drafthouse – West Oaks will close our doors on Monday, June 25.

They are encouraging moviegoers in the area to visit the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - Mason in Katy, which is about 10 minutes away. Click the Read link below for the full blog post on the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema web site.

The writing was on the wall when a new Edwards Theater was announced in March 2011 for the West Oaks Mall. Having two movie theaters in such close proximity surely meant that the Alamo's days were numbered, and with the anticipated Fall 2012 opening of the new theater, Alamo's loss is Regal's gain.
