“Enjoy an Austin tradition by catching a new release, cult classic or indie film screening with a bucket of beer and dinner. The Alamo Drafthouse doesn't play commercials or trailers before movies, instead an unpredictable array or strange cinematic shorts and often movie-themed bizarreness. Catch a singalong to Greece, Rocky Horror Show or others classics if you can!”
