The Best Film, Food and Drink, All in One Seat
Alamo Drafthouse Staten Island’s nine theaters will showcase the very best new releases, iconic special events, and the company’s unique take on repertory programming. Each theater will be equipped with top-of-the-line digital 4K laser projection and dynamic surround sound, and fully outfitted with luxury recliners equipped with footrests to ensure every seat in the house offers a viewing experience of unparalleled comfort.
Continuing the company’s commitment to preserving 35mm, Alamo Drafthouse Staten Island will feature 35mm changeover projection so that both classic films and new releases can be experienced in glorious celluloid. Alamo Drafthouse Staten Island will also present the company’s signature repertory programming, deep dives into hardcore cinephilia, and family-friendly choices like low-cost Kids Camp screenings that raise money for local nonprofits and schools.
Founded in 1997, Alamo Drafthouse has been heralded for unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades including “Best Theater Ever” (Time Magazine) and “The Coolest Theater in the World” (Wired). Alamo Drafthouse provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run movies, independent films, and special events with an extensive menu made from scratch. Guests order all food and drinks from servers who quietly attend to them throughout the movie.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, Alamo Drafthouse shows a curated collection of rare and humorous clips themed to each feature. Additionally, Alamo Drafthouse protects the theatrical experience with a zero tolerance policy for people who disrupt the film with talking or texting.
