This a great theater that has good food and drinks. Nothing better than watching a movie and drinking an "adult" milkshake. Great variety of menu items to chose from depending on how hungry you are.

Love this place. Anywhere I can get a glass of wine, a salad...or a beer and some awesome nachos...and watch a movie, I'm all in. Yes, it's a bit expensive. But where else can you see awesome video clips and outtakes prior to the movie instead of ads, expertly chosen because of their relationship to the movie? My advice: arrive... More

The inside bar has many craft beers on tap along with all of the name brand beers. They have a nice menu selection of appetizers and sandwiches as well. All of this can be brought into the theater for your enjoyment as you watch the film of your choice. The endless bowl of popcorn is fantastic as who doesn't love... More

We love coming the the Alamo. The staff is very friendly but we love their zero tolerant policy for being late or loud. Food is excellent and very reasonable especially because you are served during your movie!

This was our second visit to Alamo and have to say...much better than our first! The table and seating in this newer theater was much easier to negotiate during the movie than the narrow bar we had at our first visit. The pizzas we ordered were excellent also and the beer selection was fantastic. The only issue we had was... More

I like this venue to watch movies.They don't put up with noisy customers and their casual food is pretty good.Decient hamburger, good drinks and uneven popcorn.The 6$ price for endless popcorn is nice, however it can be over salty and cold.When it's hot and buttery it is really good.I recommend it.

I am comparing this theater to the only other theater I've gone to that serves alcohol and meals. The reason for 4 stars is because the the food is just okay and the seats aren't very comfortable. I do like the ads and little movie clips of days gone by cinema, but it doesn't come close to a Cinebistro.

I love the concept at Alamo and that you never have to get up again for concessions. They have an excellent selection of craft brews and a decent wine selection. The cocktail menu is not great and mixed drinks are not the specialty. I got one gin and tonic that came without ice and another that forgot the gin. The... More

I love this theatre. It's been one of our favorites since it's opened. We've been with friends, on dates, with the kids and the family. They have a full menu with alcohol. The food is pretty good - although I wish they would bring back the Verde pizza which was my favorite. The never ending popcorn is a pillar in... More

Very nice experience - but you need to know the system. You should arrive well before the movie starting time. Meaning, its much better to get there, order and get your food and drinks while the lights are on - once the previews start, it still fine, but a bit of a pain.
