Alamo Drafthouse Announces Plans to Open Midtown Location
Midtown Crossing is elevating its entertainment profile with the addition of a distinguished new anchor tenant, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (drafthouse.com), the nationally-renowned dine-in theater heralded by Entertainment Weekly as “the best theater in America.”
“We’ve worked extremely hard over the past two and a half years to create the best cinematic experience for the Omaha community with everything from our sound and presentation all the way down to the popcorn,” said Derek Dillon, Alamo Drafthouse Omaha creative manager. “We’re excited to further expand our Omaha footprint by providing Midtown Crossing and Omaha’s urban core with our unique Alamo Drafthouse experience.”
In addition to screening a diverse range of films – from the latest blockbusters to classic cinema – Alamo Drafthouse offers in-seat dining and a full, multi-course menu: burgers, pizzas, salads, snacks and desserts prepared fresh from locally-sourced ingredients. Beers from local craft breweries are also highlighted and promoted, and all orders are served by wait staff trained to be inconspicuous.
Based in Austin, TX, Alamo Drafthouse has locations throughout the country, including a second metro-area theater in La Vista. The Midtown Crossing opening is slated for 2018 and will occupy the space currently leased by Marcus Midtown Cinema, which closed its doors on May 14.
Community involvement is also a company staple. Alamo Drafthouse supports organizations making a positive difference in their local communities and serves as presenting sponsor for Midtown Crossing’s free community series Monday Night at the Movies.
