What a perfect set up: Movies, food, and an attentive waitstaff. The Alamo could introduce a whole new generation of kids to the wonders of George Pal and the Harryhausens, to serials and superheros, to matinee idols and musicals. But with their current 21 & up policy, Alamo Drafthouse is limiting its clientele of funky film aficienados. We think weekend matinees and occasional family fare will move so many nachos and foccacia, that diminished beer sales might not matter. Then again, some accompanying parents will hold their own in the brew department, so it might not even matter.
