The Brooklyn outpost of the long-awaited dine-in movie theater Alamo Drafthouse will finally be making its debut next week. The popular Austin-based chain will be opening the doors on its Downtown Brooklyn location on Friday, October 28, according to the Times. All the theaters have reserved seating and wait service during the film, with burgers, salads, Oddfellows ice cream, beer, and cocktails. The theater also has a separate cocktail bar called House of Wax, which displays wax figures. Tickets for movies went on sale Wednesday morning.
Alamo Drafthouse, which shows indie films, blockbusters, and older films, has been trying to open in New York City for years, including on the Upper West Side. But the new, two-story seven-screen theater in the City Point development will be the first New York City location for the company. It was initially slated to open in August.
It’s now one of several movie theaters with food service that’s joining New York City, from iPic in Seaport to Metrograph in LES. Still, expect this location to be a big destination for the neighborhood. "New York is still, in my opinion, underscreened for the population," Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League tells the Times. "There’s nothing like what we’re doing in that neighborhood and we thought it would be a great home." Check out the food and drink menus below.
