Alamo Drafthouse Coming To Michigan

KalamazooRenderingAUSTIN, TX — Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to unveil its plans for its first location in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  The ten-screen theater will be owned by EPR Properties and operated by Alamo Drafthouse and located at 180 Portage Street, former home of the Rave Cityplace 14.

Alamo Drafthouse combines dinner, drinks, films and events, all under one roof. The theaters have been heralded for their unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades like “Best Theater Ever” (Time Magazine) and “the coolest theater in the world” (Wired).Alamo Drafthouse provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run movies, independent films and special programming events with an extensive menu made from scratch in a state-of-the-art culinary kitchen. Customers order food and drinks from servers who quietly attend to them throughout the movie.

Additionally, Alamo Drafthouse protects the theater experience with a zero tolerance policy for people who disrupt the film with talking or texting.  Alamo Drafthouse was featured on global news for a viral “Don’t Talk” PSA that used a humorously misguided voicemail from an actual patron who was ejected for texting during the film.  The full story on the long tradition of Alamo’s no talking/texting policy can be found here.

The theater is expected to open in mid-2013.
