This was our second visit to Alamo and have to say...much better than our first! The table and seating in this newer theater was much easier to negotiate during the movie than the narrow bar we had at our first visit. The pizzas we ordered were excellent also and the beer selection was fantastic. The only issue we had was... More

I like this venue to watch movies.They don't put up with noisy customers and their casual food is pretty good.Decient hamburger, good drinks and uneven popcorn.The 6$ price for endless popcorn is nice, however it can be over salty and cold.When it's hot and buttery it is really good.I recommend it.

I am comparing this theater to the only other theater I've gone to that serves alcohol and meals. The reason for 4 stars is because the the food is just okay and the seats aren't very comfortable. I do like the ads and little movie clips of days gone by cinema, but it doesn't come close to a Cinebistro.

I love the concept at Alamo and that you never have to get up again for concessions. They have an excellent selection of craft brews and a decent wine selection. The cocktail menu is not great and mixed drinks are not the specialty. I got one gin and tonic that came without ice and another that forgot the gin. The... More

I love this theatre. It's been one of our favorites since it's opened. We've been with friends, on dates, with the kids and the family. They have a full menu with alcohol. The food is pretty good - although I wish they would bring back the Verde pizza which was my favorite. The never ending popcorn is a pillar in... More

Very nice experience - but you need to know the system. You should arrive well before the movie starting time. Meaning, its much better to get there, order and get your food and drinks while the lights are on - once the previews start, it still fine, but a bit of a pain.

My husband and I went to the movies here, due to the nearby location and available movie selection. After selecting a seat with the ticket seller we were greeted by our "server" who explained the menu and offered to provide whatever food support we wanted. Popcorn, drinks (bar drinks, too), sandwiches and more. We felt somewhat guilty that we only... More

If you understand that food is not the primary focus of the outing, it can be a fun time. The food is ok (at best) but the service is good and it's always more fun to watch a movie and eat. Also, the beer selection is enough to satisfy your thirst.

Love this place for movies and we love having our food and drinks served. It makes the experience so much better and the perceived pampering certainly keeps the kids happy. The candy and desserts aren't cheap, but we splurge during these special family occasions. We normally get popcorn, soft drinks, candy, and desserts for the kids, but the adults grab... More
