An Alamo is opening in KC and my coworker and I have never been so excited.

First Alamo Location In New York City Slated For Upper West Side

AUSTIN, Texas, April 5, 2012 — Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to unveil its plans for its first location in New York. The five-screen Manhattan-area theater will be owned and operated by Alamo Drafthouse and located on the Upper West Side, occupying the former Metro Theater at 2626 Broadway.

“My often-stated top priority for the Alamo Drafthouse has been to open a venue in New York,” said Alamo founder and CEO Tim League. “When we discovered the availability of the historic Metro theater, we immediately knew we had found the perfect location for our new Manhattan home.”

The venue will feature five screens of new releases, repertory programming and the Alamo’s unique signature programming. Like all Alamo Drafthouse theaters, the Alamo Drafthouse at the Metro 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 2013.

Alamo Drafthouse is now accepting applications for managers, kitchen staff, creative programmers, bartenders and waiters for the upcoming Manhattan theater. Employment applications can be downloaded at

I love love love the Alamo Drafthouse concept. I love what Tim League is all about. I love it.

However, that theater is Broadway and 99th.

That’s an uptown dead zone. I was hoping they could find a cooler, more trafficked spot. The whole concept feels so East Village or even Brooklyn.
