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.

My husband and I went to the movies here, due to the nearby location and available movie selection. After selecting a seat with the ticket seller we were greeted by our "server" who explained the menu and offered to provide whatever food support we wanted. Popcorn, drinks (bar drinks, too), sandwiches and more. We felt somewhat guilty that we only... More

If you understand that food is not the primary focus of the outing, it can be a fun time. The food is ok (at best) but the service is good and it's always more fun to watch a movie and eat. Also, the beer selection is enough to satisfy your thirst.

Love this place for movies and we love having our food and drinks served. It makes the experience so much better and the perceived pampering certainly keeps the kids happy. The candy and desserts aren't cheap, but we splurge during these special family occasions. We normally get popcorn, soft drinks, candy, and desserts for the kids, but the adults grab... More

Great movie house - good selection (including old classics) and comfortable seats in a clean environment. Staff and pub on presence are both pleasant and of reasonable quality (on the fly, if you just want craft brews you can do better, but it is convenient to combine a movie with a drank afterwards to discuss. I find the food in... More

This is the only place we will see a movie. The reserved seats are great. They have a really good beer selection with lots of local options. Prices are similar to regular theaters, too. The unlimited popcorn is a great a deal! They are VERY strict about disruptions, so you never have to worry about inconsiderate people ruining the movie.

My wife and me have only been here once and it was great. I thought it would be distracting to have waiters and waitresses coming around and blocking your view of the movie. They don a really good job of not doing that. The only negative is that if you order food that requires you to have a little bit... More
