Alamo Drafthouse, the Austin-based dine-in movie theater chain known for its quirky programming, is continuing to expand across North Texas with a new location set for Little Elm. Located at Main Marketplace, at the intersection of Main St. and FM 423, it will be Alamo’s fourth theater in the area following on the heels of a multiplex in Richardson, which opened in 2013, and two under construction in Irving and near downtown Dallas.
The Little Elm building will feature eight auditoriums (some equipped with the ability to show 35mm films), as well as a lounge, patio, and a menu of beers, wine, cocktails and food.
“Little Elm has worked very hard to carve out its niche in any extremely competitive development market,” said David Hillock, Little Elm’s mayor, in an Alamo press release. “We were lucky that Goveia Commercial Real Estate helped us land Wired.com’s ‘Coolest Movie Theater in the World’ in Little Elm, a fresh, young town heading in the same direction.”
Look for it to be up and running by the first quarter of 2016.
