The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema chain will have its second DC area location, this time in “DC proper.” The popular Austin, Texas based bar and cinema chain offering “next-level food and drink” will be the movie theater partner at Edgewood’s massive 6 block development project along Rhode Island Avenue, NE. The other current area location is in Ashburn, Virginia.
The Alamo group will be taking 44,000 sq. ft. in the development and will also have a standalone bar offering separate from the movie theater. The theater offers in-house prepared food options and extensive craft beer selections (including pitchers). Every single seat will be a luxury recliner and each theater offers Sony 4K Digital Cinema projection and top-of-the-line sound.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is world-renowned for their unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades such as “Best Theater Ever” by Time magazine and “the coolest theater in the world,” by Wired. Their original Austin locations offer great lifestyle events like Saturday morning “classic movies” from your childhood with cereal bars, sing-a-long events and theme parties.
Coming soon to Northeast in 2019!
