AUSTIN, TX — A new quad art cinema is scheduled to on April 29 in downtown Austin’s Second Street district. The Violet Crown’s four all-digital intimate screening rooms will all have stadium seating with fold-out table trays for patrons who can purchase food, drinks, and cocktails from the service offered in the theater’s lounge.

The Violet Crown, on the second floor of the AMLI on 2nd apartment building, will specialize in art, independent, documentary and international films.

Banowsky says that will differentiate it from the Alamo Ritz on East Sixth Street, which shows both mainstream and independent films. Austin’s only other theater featuring art and independent films is the Regal Arbor Cinema in Northwest Austin.
