Austin’s original Drafthouse Cinema was the only independently owned and operated theater in Austin. It was also the first of its kind in the city. Take an ordinary theater, remove every other row of seats and replace them with tables, and have waiters serve decent food during the movie. Don’t worry — they have a system, and your movie experience will not be ruined by the waiters.
The drafthouse had five theaters in Austin, one in Houston, and the rolling roadshow.
Rolling Roadshow? Well, that’s a series of unique events they sponsor whenever the mood strikes. Watch “Jaws” while floating in an inner tube in Lake Travis at midnight. Watch “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” at the original house, with the original cast. You know, cool things like that.
Hands down, the Alamo Drafthouse is the best thing to happen to movies in Austin in decades. This Downtown cinema was closed in the late-2000’s and is now a bar.
