Netflix is changing up their distribution game a bit by giving some of their original movies from prestige filmmakers a theatrical release. One of the key awards season releases from Netflix slated to hit theaters is Alfonso Cuaron‘s acclaimed drama Roma, but it sounds like at least one signature movie theater chain won’t be playing it.
The Alamo Drafthouse is a favorite theater chain among cinephiles, but moviegoers won’t be able to see Roma at any Drafthouse theaters, because the chain won’t agree to the strict specifications Netflix wants in place in order for the movie to be shown. Read More »

The Alamo Drafthouse is coming to Los Angeles in 2019.
We’ve previously written about how the Drafthouse was supposed to arrive in the City of Angels in 2015 and in 2018, but construction is now officially underway on its location in Downtown L.A., so it appears that this targeted release date might finally stick.
Alamo Drafthouse is also going to be opening its first theater in Manhattan next year as well, and both of these new establishments will include branches of Video Vortex, a bar that also offers free rentals of Blu-rays, DVDs, VHS tapes, and even VCRs. Read More »

Hey, you remember Titanic, right? It’s that movie James Cameron directed about a blossoming, forbidden romance on the most famous ocean liner disaster in history. Well, now you can relive all the magic of that ill-fated relationship on another ocean liner, one that is far less likely to sink.
Alamo Drafthouse is hosting a special Rolling Roadshow screening of Titanic that will take place on The Queen Mary ocean liner in Long Beach, California. So even if the ship sinks while you’re watching Kate Winslet fly on the nose of the Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio, at least you know the water won’t be freezing. Read More »

Word of an Alamo Drafthouse video store arrived at the end of last year. Now here’s an update: the VHS rentals will be free. Video Vortex, coming to Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh in North Carolina, will offer free rentals, VCR loans and 40+ local draft beers. (Sorry; the beers aren’t free.)

The Alamo Drafthouse is the king of theater chains when it comes to hosting screenings that fans go crazy for. They have awesome movie parties, get special guests for Q&As, and have awesome collectibles and memorabilia to commemorate them. But one of their upcoming events for a certain horror movie releasing in September has the potential to give you nightmares.
A new adaptation of Stephen King’s It is coming to theaters next month from director Andy Muschietti. From what we’ve seen from the trailers, this could be the adaptation fans have been waiting to see since they read the book so many years ago. However, for some lucky, or maybe unlucky viewers, the experience will be made all the more unnerving by watching It in a theater full of clowns.
If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, maybe you’d rather hear some tracks from the It soundtrack? You can find details on the It clown-only screening and the two samples of the score below.

Fresh off what was dubbed an unforgettable event in honor of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Alamo Drafthouse has yet another incredible screening experience planned, this time for a sci-fi classic that’s turning 40 this year.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and while we already know Steven Spielberg’s film is returning to theaters in September for the milestone anniversary, we had no idea Alamo Drafthouse was going to do something like this again to celebrate their own 20th anniversary.
Partnering with SyFy for their 25th anniversary this year, Alamo Drafthouse has planned a 40th anniversary screening of Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the base of Devil’s Tower, the same natural, national monument that is an important piece of the film’s story. A similar event was planned as part of Alamo’s Rolling Roadshow many years ago, but this sounds even more epic. Find out more about the Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th anniversary event below. Read More »
