To add to my previous comment, I was told that this cinema opened in 1997.

This cinema had closed by the time of my visit in September 2011. It’s now a bar called Ten Oak. Quentin Tarantino is great friends with Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League and the opening scene in the director’s film ‘Death Proof’ (2007) features this cinema. And the neon sign belonging to the bar in the film – “The Bone Shack” – hangs in the foyer of the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar, Austin.

Hey!! I wish that they’d at least try the Alamo Draft House here in the Boston Area! It looks like a nifty little theatre, btw.

Very cool concept it does not seem to work everywhere it is tried though.NIce looking marquee and vertical.

Someone should add the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar to the database of this fine website. ‘Tis a supremely excellent venue.

I’ve been to this theater numerous times while visiting the SXSW Film Festival, and I think it’s what (my) heaven looks like.
