Best Movie Theater

Alamo Drafthouse

More should be said around here about how genuinely grateful we are to the Alamo for facilitating getting sauced at the movies. Seriously, have you ever tried smuggling a 40 into a packed movie theatre? The stress can ruin a movie, especially after you accidentally spill malt liquor on a middle schooler during that lame love scene in Avatar. Anyway, the Alamo is the best. Besides serving reputable booze – these nuts have their own signature line of wine! – and great food, they screen a most impressive array of serious films, summer blockbusters, popcorn fare (P.S.: order some popcorn), bizarre foreign masterpieces, forgotten experimental relics, and regular ol’ movies. We are so spoiled … and just a little sauced.
