Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to announce plans to open a Corpus Christi, TX location with franchise partner BACH Holdings.  The Corpus Christi venue will be the sixth Alamo Drafthouse opened by BACH Holdings and will be located at the corner of Staples Street and Yorktown Blvd.  The location was originally slated to be Movies & More, a project led by long time theatre owner Jeff Dinger.  After discussing the opportunity, BACH and Dinger decided it would be best to partner and develop the location as an Alamo Drafthouse.  Alamo Drafthouse will begin construction in the Spring and plan for a December 2015 opening. 

"We have long loved Corpus Christi and have been extremely impressed with the growth of the area," said BACH Holdings co-owner Brandon Arceneaux. "With this opportunity, we found the perfect location and partner to bring our brand of cinema to town." 

Jeff Dinger adds, "I am very excited to join the Alamo Drafthouse family of exhibitors and look forward to bringing to Corpus Christi the unique and creative energy for which the Alamo Drafthouse is known." 

Alamo Drafthouse provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run and independent films and special programming events with an extensive menu made from scratch in a state-of-the-art culinary kitchen. After constructing the 32,000 square foot space, the Alamo Drafthouse will be a state of the art venue with seven screens, and the only dinner theatre in Corpus Christi.  Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with Sony 4K digital projection as well as excellent screen size to room ratio and amazing Dolby Digital sound.  In addition to the superior AV equipment, the layout of each screening room will eliminate the traditional front row, ensuring every seat in the house allows for a great viewing experience.  Alamo Drafthouse will also feature a lounge offering an extensive menu of draft and bottled beers, wine and food.  The lounge will offer patrons an inviting place to socialize whether they are early for the movie or  just want  to visit with friends.
