Original Alamo Drafthouse, Alamo Lake Creek

Tim and Karrie League’s minicinema-chain has been open for a decade; try imagining Austin without it. While the Rolling Roadshow made Alamo a national institution, ever-soaring downtown business rates almost closed the original downtown site. Yet even with those financial pressures, the Leagues have stayed true to their ambition of providing accessible, affordable, and innovative cinema, whether it’s the regular, free midnight Weird Wednesday or Terror Thursday series, throwing the doors open for World Cup screenings, or the perfect coupling of cuisine and ciné.
