After summer delays, the Austin-based chain will open its doors
After a few delays and false starts, word is out that Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse may finally be opening—for real this time. The much anticipated dine-in theater chain will open its Downtown Brooklyn outpost at the City Point development project on October 28th, according to a New York Times piece about the theater. A tweet also seems to confirm the news.
Back in August, the company announced that the Brooklyn location had indefinitely delayed its opening, citing “unforeseen complications,” but now that other businesses within City Point are opening—Century 21 welcomed its first shoppers earlier this month—it seems like things are moving along once again. (Reps for the project had not responded to Curbed’s inquiries as of press time.)
The theater will consists of seven screens divided between two floors, dine-in services, and a separate bar named the House of Wax. Seating for screenings will have to be reserved and special screenings will include events such as live commentary, after parties, and the like.
