Alamo Drafthouse - Slaughter Lane
For true film buffs, The Alamo Drafthouse is the definitive place to catch movies in Austin. With their tirelessly original programming, The Alamo delivers good times with movie classics and plenty of themed interactive fun, including a full menu of theatre-friendly meals and drinks. Most days of the week are grab bags of popcorn blockbusters, but expect to see regular special guest speakers and first-time screeners here as well.
The Slaughter Lane location is ideal for South Austinites and feature many of the same events taking place downtown. With different events and movie listings at the four Alamo locations throughout Austin, you can basically find something great to do any night of the week. And it's certainly a bit "nicer," with stadium seating and leather chairs.
Make sure to arrive at least thirty minutes prior to your show in order to get a good seat to most shows. Then you'll have time to order your food and drinks (beer + wine served here) before the movie starts, and you'll be able to enjoy the themed pre-show commercials and film clips the Alamo folks put together specifically for your movie
