DiG just sent me over the good news!
Alamo Drafthouse is planning on opening a location in DC!
We love them because:
a) They have silly clips before movies, like this one with Monkeys!
b) They sometimes do a Rolling Roadshow, like the Dusk till Dawn Bad Taste John Water's Marathon in Bmore!
A bit about them from their site:
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas provides a unique combination of theatre and restaurant, showing first-run & independent films and special programming events with an extensive menu made from scratch in a state-of-the-art culinary kitchen. Customers order all food and drinks from servers who quietly attend to them throughout the movie. Handcrafted, specialty beers are available on tap, including The Drafthouse’s own signature ale brewed locally.
Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, a pre-show of rare and hilarious clips are shown that change on a regular basis, often tailored specifically to the feature film. The pre-show adds to the overall Alamo experience where patrons can look forward to arriving early to catch it.
This is THE place to visit in Austin, where Weird Al, Elvira and Broken Lizard regularly visit and the Butt-Numb-A-Thon is held each year!
