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.
