Coming back to South Lamar this weekend, the Alamo Drafthouse is finally opening it’s beautifully redesigned theater to the masses. The rebuild was mandatory due to the redevelopment project that is surrounding the South Lamar area. They will be debuting their new looks with a showing of Michel Gondry’s “Mood Indigo” film.
The newly rebuilt location will boast nine screens that will accommodate a total of 975 movie-goers comfortably. The largest theater will fit 198 patrons, while the smallest has room for a more intimate 46 seats. For those who are wondering about the parking situation, a new parking garage has been erected as well, with a capacity of roughly 600 spaces.
The opening will give those involved with the Alamo Drafthouse about a month before their internationally famous, annual Fantastic Fest film festival. Movies being showcased this year include Fabrice Du Welz’s “Alleluia”, Isaac Ezban’s “The Incident (El Incidente)”, and the ever-so-charming Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”, with many other films as well.
