It's now common to hear "curate" thrown around – like your friend, Sasha, who "curated" the perfect dinner party. Sasha didn't curate shit, she just invited people she liked. And while the same could be true of the Alamo Drafthouse – that they're only playing movies they like – their programming is simply a wonder to behold: From scrappy, beer-soaked cinematheque to multiple-markets Kaiju, we've watched the League empire grow, and grow, and grow. Now that everyone from Anaheim to Yonkers knows about the Alamo, we're starting to see an influx of faux franchises. And now Austinites have their beloved South Lamar location back – which we bet will be well-curated.
