After a long five months away, Alamo Drafthouse is beyond excited to announce its six North Texas locations will begin to reopen this week. Alamo Drafthouse Lake Highlands will reopen first on Thursday, August 20, followed by Alamo Drafthouse Cedars and Alamo Drafthouse Richardson on Monday, August 24, Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills and Alamo Drafthouse Denton on Tuesday, August 25, and Alamo Drafthouse Las Colinas on Wednesday, August 26. Tickets are on sale now for THE NEW MUTANTS, BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC, and more at Alamo Drafthouse Lake Highlands, with tickets for all other venues on sale this Friday. TENET will open Thursday, September 3, with tickets going on sale soon.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Alamo Drafthouse and getting back to what we love to do – bringing guests the best film, food, and drinks all in one seat,” says Bill DiGaetano, CEO of Alamo Drafthouse North Texas. “With our enhanced safety protocols we ‘re confident about opening and providing the safest and most enjoyable experience possible for our staff and guests.”

Audiences have been clamoring for the chance to see movies like Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated action epic TENET and third chapter in the BILL & TED saga.

In addition to new releases, Alamo Drafthouse plans to continue its tradition of leading the industry in the most diverse selection of films at any theater in the world with two incredible repertory programs:

MAKING UP FOR LOST TIME This August series explores time, time travel, time machines, time warps and…lost time! The classic time-twisting movies INCEPTION, BACK TO THE FUTURE I and II, BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, DONNIE DARKO, and THE EDGE OF TOMORROW. Inspired by BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC and a feeling everyone is now too familiar with – lost time.

MASKS! Masks have been a ubiquitous part of our reality for the past five months, essential for slowing the spread of Coronavirus and mandated at Alamo Drafthouse theaters. But masks have also been a staple of cinema since the invention of celluloid, and this September Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating our favorite masked heroes and villains across a variety of genres, including BATMAN (1989), SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, SET IT OFF, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, THE MASK OF ZORRO, and THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.

Alamo Drafthouse will continue to offer films for rental or purchase through Alamo On Demand. A 100% curated VOD platform, Alamo On Demand allows programmers to champion new and exciting films far beyond the auditorium. Following the exclusive theatrical launch of BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC, the film will also be available on Alamo On Demand.

As announced previously, Alamo Drafthouse has developed an array of aggressive new procedures and protocols to protect guest and team member health and safety. Full details can be found at

Alamo Drafthouse will reopen close to half its locations across the country over the next two weeks. Please check your local theater website for more information.
