Hot on the heels of announcing the second location in North Texas on South Lamar and Cadiz south of downtown Dallas, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DFW, voted 2014’s Best Movie Theater by the readers of D Magazine, announces today that Las Colinas is the location for the third Alamo Drafthouse in North Texas.  Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will open in the new Music Factory at Las Colinas located at Hwy 114 and Fuller Drive immediately south of the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. 

The development breaks ground at a special outdoor event on Saturday night, August 30 at 7 pm featuring a free Alamo Rolling Roadshow of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981), food trucks, temple-themed bounce houses, local craft beers from Community Beer Company, whip demonstrations, and, of course, an original 35MM print and games that have made Alamo famous. This event is BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair).  The film starts at sunset.

Music Factory Community

“We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Music Factory at Las Colinas,” said Bill C. DiGaetano, COO of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DFW. “We pride ourselves in taking first-run movies and events to the next level.  Being a part of an entertainment specific development is a perfect fit.  Each Alamo is unique to the community it serves; co-tenants like the 8,000-seat amphitheater, extraordinary  restaurants,  the  bowling  center,  and  other entertainment venues give us opportunities to create incredible events for our  guests  at  the theater  or  with  an neighboring venue.  Whether it’s an outdoor movie paired with live music in the amphitheater, or a screening of THE BIG LEBOWSKI before a round of bowling, it’s safe to say Alamo’s movies and events will be over the top in Las Colinas.”

 

Signature Features of Alamo Drafthouse Las Colinas

Alamo Drafthouse Las Colinas will be a state-of-the-art theater.  Each auditorium will be equipped with the latest in 4K digital projection with larger-than-average screen size to room ratios and 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound.  Select auditoriums will also feature 35mm projectors for Cinephiles to experience classic and repertory content as they were meant to be viewed.  Not only will they feature superior audio-visual equipment, additionally the format of each theater will eliminate the traditional front row, ensuring every seat in the theater allows for an optimal viewing experience.  In addition to in-theater dining Alamo Las Colinas will feature a second floor lounge and patio offering an extensive menu of draft and bottled beers, wine, cocktails and freshly made food.  The lounge will offer patrons an inviting place to socialize whether waiting for a movie or simply coming to sample scratch-made menu items, cocktails or local craft beers.

“The addition of Alamo Drafthouse to this project is a tremendous win,” said Irving Interim City Manager Steve McCullough. “We recently announced the financing on the city’s portion of the Entertainment Center and are pleased to be moving forward and bringing additional entertainment options to Irving.”
