“Dinner and a movie” in Laredo is about to get a makeover. Coming soon to north Laredo is the Alamo Drafthouse – San Isidro. For those that aren’t familiar with the Alamo Drafthouse concept, it’s a dinner theater. No more having to go to one place for dinner and crossing your fingers you’re out of the restaurant in a timely manner and hauling it to the movie theater.
With the Alamo Drafthouse – San Isidro, it’s all under the same roof. All you gotta do is walk up to the ticket window, purchase your tickets, find your seat and begin browsing the menu. An early arrival is key. This will ensure that you get to browse the menu and place your order while the main lights are still on. Once you’ve made your selection, jot it down on a piece of paper that is provided with the menu. A server will then swoop down and take your order. Don’t worry, during the feature you will still be able to add on to your order, all you gotta do is fill out another handy paper slip. Your check will be handed to you about thirty minutes before the movie ends to ensure a timely checkout.
If you find that you’re running ahead of schedule, there’s no need to drive around on miscellaneous errands waiting for showtime, arrive early and stop by Glass Half Full, a lounge inside the theater that will be offering an extensive menu of draft and bottled beers, wine and food. Sit back, relax and enjoy some lovely libations while you wait for your friends to arrive.
The Alamo Drafthouse doesn’t only show the latest blockbuster movies, get ready for sing-alongs, movie marathons and independent film screenings.
A golden rule that all Alamo Drafthouse properties abide by is that they don’t allow talking or texting in the middle of a movie. Always remember to double check your mobile phone that it’s in silent mode, or if you’re a little forgetful like me, you might want to leave that phone in your vehicle. This will help you avoid a tap on the shoulder from an usher asking you to step out of the theater.
