"...World-famous as the home of Fantastic Fest, its nine screens hold a total of 975 guests, with the traditional Drafthouse in-screen food and beverage service. Fresh from a 2014 overhaul that saw the complex around it shift from a rundown strip mall to upscale condos and restaurants, all screens are fitted with Sony 4K projectors, and there's still a 35mm set up available. There’s also the full-service Highball Bar next door, featuring seven bizarrely (awesomely) themed karaoke rooms, and a Shake Shack a short walk away.
