Technically, there are six Alamo Drafthouse locations in Austin (320 E. 6th, 1120 S. Lamar, 2700 W. Anderson, 13729 Research, 5701 W. Slaughter, and a traveling venue known as the "Rolling Roadshow" (check the website for its current location)). The popular belief is that, if you're in Austin and you want to see a movie, THIS is the place to be; it's a theater where you can order drinks and food from a strong menu to be served to you during the film (the aisles are wide enough to accommodate dining tables). Arrive one hour prior to showtime to find a good seat and to start ordering if you're going to dine heartily here--last call is 45 to 30 minutes before the movie ends.
