Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn

After a failed attempt to renovate the Metro Theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Alamo Drafthouse finally makes their long-awaited New York City debut at Downtown Brooklyn’s City Point, an up-and-coming residential-retail complex. The theater made its soft opening on October 21st, 2016, and will make its official opening on October 28th.

Alamo’s signature in-theater dining and customized pre-shows are integral to the Alamo Drafthouse moviegoing experience, and this location bears no different. All 7 screens are equipped with Sony 4K projectors and QSC sound systems. Theater 1 is also equipped for 35mm screenings.

P.S. There is no Alamo marquee so most downtowners are clueless that a theatre is in the complex and how to get into it.

I think having something like Napoleon Bonaparte’s death mask on display in the bar does make it kind of creepy & ghoulish, Orlando. Also in this day and age, I doubt highly that there will be any type of marquee, possibly a Alamo Drafthouse sign but no traditional marquee, just look at the one in Yonkers.

Theatre 7 is equipped for DCP and 35MM and plays host to Terror Tuesdays and Weird Wednesdays – two signature series imported from Austin that make use of Alamo’s AGFA (American Genre Film Archive).

Print quality varies – sometimes you get a nearly pristine print, other times it can be a struggle to watch something scratched and terribly faded.

There is an Alamo Drafthouse sign in one window on the fourth floor. A pedestrian does need to look up, and in, the right place, to see it. I suspect the Alamo’s audience are people who know it exists and where to look for it, and not casual moviegoers (rightly or wrongly).

Correcting John Fink’s post from January 10, 2017: It is Theater One that shows 35mm films such as Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday. In my opinion, the 35mm prints they screen are pretty decent. Nothing too scratched or faded. Always as great time there, and projectiin is usually a top class affair.

How’s the audio for 35mm? Is it Dolby Digital, Dolby Stereo, DTS, or SDDS?

This theater is also known as Alamo Drafthouse City Point, which is what the building and mall is called, and where the theater is housed.

Theater 7 is now equipped to screen 70mm features. So far 70mm films screened were first run DUNKIRK and PHANTOM THREAD. Repertory films screened were John Carpenter’s THE THING. Promised to be screened in 2018 is HOWARD THE DUCK.

I heard rumors that Century 21 is closing and the Alamo taking over the 3rd floor with 7 more screens

Apparently those rumors are going to substantiate! 16 screens total! Wild!
