Austin, TX: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - South Lamar Reopens

Posted on Monday, August 18th, 2014 10:05 PM

Theater PhotoThe Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - South Lamar in Austin, Texas reopened to the general public on Saturday, August 16, 2014. The theater closed in January 2013 for a remodeling project, which saw the screen count expand from six to nine, and the addition of The Highball, a bar featuring seven karaoke rooms, a ballroom dance floor, and a stage, lounge area, and outdoor patio.

“We wanted to preserve as much of the spirit of the old Alamo South Lamar but extend on the ideas we explored in the first place," said CEO and founder Tim League. “We hired the same artists, muralist Heyd Fontenot and sculptor Evan Voyles, to update the work they originally created. We’ve also added some great new additions including a Shining themed photo booth and some truly outrageous new karaoke room themes.”

Each auditorium will have dine-in service with reserved seating that will make it easy to enjoy the movies that are projected by 4K Digital Cinema Projection systems.
