Alamo Drafthouse Richardson opens in August

Alamo Drafhouse offers a little wine, but no fava beans.  

 
The Dallas/Fort Worth area’s first Alamo opens in Richardson on Friday, August 16, the Austin-based company announced Friday.
The theater chain’s Richardson location is at 100 S. Central Expressway. Prior to that grand opening, the theater will hold some special events. On July 13, they will begin a free outdoor summer series with a screening of Austin director Richard Linkletter’s Dazed and Confused.

“People always ask us what makes Alamo different from other theaters. It is our culture and our people,” said Bill C DiGaetano, Alamo Drafthouse DFW, COO in a news release. “Alamo always has been and will always be for movie lovers, by movie lovers.”
Among the things the cinema chain does different is an announcement it made Wednesday. The theatre will launch its second limited edition signature wine line, inspired by Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs. The new wines, paying homage to the movie’s Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill characters will bear the names, The Cannibal Chianti and the Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio.
The Alamo Drafthouse here will have seven theaters that sit 820 total viewers, including one room with a 60 foot screen, the largest in the chain. The area around the Alamo Drafthouse will be a theater wonderland, with the just-opened Look Cinema nearby.

Alamo has locations in Austin, El Paso, Houston, Lubbock, New Braunfels and San Antonio. It also has theaters in California, Virginia, Michigan, Missouri, Colorado and New York.
