The Alamo Drafthouse Takes Dinner and a Movie to a New Level

At Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, the food plays a starring role.

The food plays a big part in the nostalgia, because away from Instagram and the ability to verbally dissect the ins and outs of a dish while I'm eating, food becomes blissfully thoughtless again. A burger is just a burger — albeit a very good one. A pizza tastes like what my mom and I used to make at home, nothing fancy but with quality ingredients. A salad is divine in its simplicity.

And that ubiquitous movie popcorn? Still there. Still an unnatural shade of yellow. Still so aggressively salty it'll have you grabbing your drink at all too frequent intervals.

Only now that we're older, that drink is a cocktail, delivered right to your table in the middle of a film, artfully prepared with craft gin and a touch of Lillet. Shaken, not stirred.

The mushroom and white Cheddar burger comes loaded with caramelized onions, Dijon mustard and all the fixings. Pair it with a cold beer and some American Hustle.
