Just in time for the fall film blockbusters such as the highly anticipated Dune, No Time to Die, and The French Dispatch, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has just opened its third location in NYC (it’s first in Manhattan), Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lower Manhattan. Double the size of Alamo Drafthouse in Downtown Brooklyn, this state-of-the-art, reserved seating location has 14 screens, occupying 37,000 square feet in the building’s sub-basement 2 and sub-basement 3 floors. Moviegoers are eagerly returning.

Once again, founder Tim League strikes the right balance of offering not only a selection of commercial releases but a decent choice of independent films, as well as repertory films. In addition, Alamo patrons can order directly from the comfort of their reclining seat dinner and dessert choices, all freshly prepared on the premises, from pizza to chicken sandwiches, popcorn, and other movie fares.

Cinephiles will also want to check out The Press Room, a hybrid museum/printing press area/bar, where they can choose from an inventory of retro film posters. On-site, there are also demonstrations on a working 1938 Vandercook letterpress being given. At the side is a bar where patrons can create their own cocktails, or purchase craft beer.

The opening month being October, a carefully curated selection of horror classics are being shown, including Halloween 1 and the new Halloween Kills.  There will even be a Scream brunch on Halloween.

November 3 marks Godzilla’s 67th anniversary. In its honor, fans will be able to partake in Godzilla Day, where they will be able to catch the world premiere of the highly anticipated 4K remastering oGojira, 1954 original (in Japanese with English subtitles.)
