Move over LOOK Cinema and Studio Movie Grill: Folks looking for a little something extra with their movie theater experience now have an excellent new option in Austin export Alamo Drafthouse, now open in Richardson. The Drafthouse packed the house on its very first night in business, showing both new releases and classic films like Logan's Run on its seven screens, and co-founder Tim League was on hand for a pre-show VIP event to speak about the company and answer questions.
League says there's definitely the potential for unique programming and food that might not be in other Drafthouse locations: "We're trying not to build cookie cutter institutions. A lot of things will be unique to Richardson." He also said more DFW locations are possible if the Richardson outpost proves successful.
