Best movie theater on the planet, as are all Alamo Drafthouses. Tim, the owner, is frigging brilliant for coming up with this idea. Great food, great beer and wine, and movies, all rolled into one!

Well, it is the best movie theater in America. Truth: sometimes it is hard for me to live in Austin. My soul, deep down, is restless and lonely without the mountains and the ocean. But I could st... read more

Great place to watch a movie! The Alamo Drafthouse serves excellent food and cocktails during the show. Sound and cinema first class. They have several locations. The Slaughter Lane location is great.

The Alamo is an Austin favorite, and certainly a house favorite. Eat, drink, and be merry (silently) while watching a whole range of movie options. Book seats in advance & arrive 30 minutes early!

Eat/drink great food and awesome wine/beer selection while watching films. Reclining super comfy seats. Located at Meuller lake park with cafes, restaurants and pretty park.

Another Austin original! Check out the special events for theme movie nights, dance/singalongs, and comedy performances. ProTip: Skip the food except for homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Every Alamo Drafthouse is awesome, this happens to be the nearest one. Get a full meal and alcoholic drinks in addition to the usual popcorn and soda fare. Special shows happen all the time.

We like going to this place because the seats are comfy and they have good draft beer and the food is pretty decent as well.

You get to order drinks and food in your seat during the movie! Also, keep your eyes on their website for special events.

Reserved seating with recliner without the extra costs!

This is our local movie theater, and it was recently upgrade so that each theater has reclining seats and you can reserve your spot ahead of time. Love it!

9 min walk to bus station (bus line 238 - north) and 3 min bus ride. Or 30 min by foot.

Reserve Seating with recliner seats and they give you a blanket! Serves food and drinks

Because recliners, blankets, and cocktails are now the only way to enjoy a movie!

The best movie going experience in Austin with all reserved seating and very good food and drink. (Alamo Drafthouse Mueller is closer and a close runner-up, though.)

The Bullock Museum provides the largest IMAX screen experience in Texas

This theatre has an arcade, full bar and a bowling alley. If you would like to sit and enjoy a beverage during the movie tell the bar and they can put you beverage in a plastic cup so you can do so.

This Theater is reasonably priced, has a bowling ally and arcade, and bar and grill. Nice theater with EVX.

Great place for kids and adults! Watch a movie, go bowling or play arcade games!! So much fun!

This isn't the nicest cinema around, but it is the only one where you can see weird, indie, and art movies.

Movie theater in outdoor mall 10 minutes away.

Located in the Galleria mall, next to several good restaurants including Tony C's (fire oven pizzas), Tadashi Sushi and Cafe Blue (seafood).

Some shop, some watch. Something for everyone. :)

A non-profit regional theater located in Austin.

Enjoy an upscale evening or enjoy bringing the little ones to the family series. Not a bad seat in the house and the local talent is awesome.
