The venue will feature seven screens of new releases, repertory programming and the Alamo's unique signature programming in both 35mm and digital formats. Like all Alamo Drafthouse theaters, Alamo Drafthouse City Point will provide food and drink service to your seat and will uphold its famously strict no-talking policy. The new theater is currently scheduled to open in 2015.
