The Imperial Market location will feature Alamo special event programming, curated pre-show entertainment and the zero tolerance no-talking and no-texting policy that Alamo is known for.
Alamo Drafthouse was founded in 1997 in Austin, TX by Tim and Karrie League, who were driven by a simple passion for watching the finest in film fare and enjoying food & beer. From a simple one screen operation featuring second run titles at discount rates, was born a theatre concept that quickly became the hub for every true cinephile in central Texas. Within its first year the venue was playing host to film premieres, visiting filmmakers, and even caught the eye of Quentin Tarantino, who began hosting legendary 5-day marathon screenings of classic exploitation titles from his personal collection.
Today Alamo Drafthouse is expanding and opening new locations across the U.S. Each location is managed with the same loving care to every detail of the experience, and all of the theaters in the network share in nationally produced signature programming and special events inspired by the first experiments with alternative content that the Leagues developed in their original theater on Colorado Street.
