Few places in the world embrace passion for anything the way The Alamo Drafthouse embraces the passion for all things film. This chain of movie theaters, the brainchild of loveable maniacs Tim and Karrie League, was founded in Austin, TX in the late 90s. Since then, it has garnered a reputation as one of the greatest movie houses on Earth; no hyperbole intended. For those unfamiliar, what sets The Alamo Drafthouse apart from so many paltry multiplexes is threefold. The Alamo boasts a full menu of tasty edibles from complex culinary triumphs to palate-pleasing comfort foods, and a wide array of beers and wines. These eats and drinks are delivered right to you as you watch the film. The Alamo has instituted an order-by-card system that ensures your movie experience will not be interrupted by the food delivery process. Furthermore, The Alamo has a strict no-talking policy stringently enforced by the management to further protect your film-going experience. But above all else, what drives hardcore movie geeks like me into the hallowed confines of The Drafthouse day after day is its plethora of signature film events and dedication to films of every conceivable ilk.
