Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Will Open in Midtown and Northwest Houston

It looks like the much-anticipated Inner-Loop Alamo Drafthouse in the Midtown area is finally going to happen.

In news announced today, Triple Tap Ventures LLC, the group that already has Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations in West Oaks Mall and on Mason Road in Katy, is going to add a spot at 2901 Louisiana sometime next year.

First, though, the group will open a cinema in the Vintage Park Shopping Village off Tomball Parkway and Louetta Road in the early part of the year.

But it will be closing the Alamo at West Oaks in West Houston this year.

The company promises auditoriums with high-tech digital projection, "screens that feature excellent ratios to the size of the rooms, sound that will blow your socks off and exceptional food to enjoy."

The Midtown theater will be located on top of a three-story parking garage, accessed through a ground-floor lobby. Its lobby bar will be visible from Milam Street and offer not only drinks but a view of the downtown skyline.
