Nothing is as iconic to the American “night out” as dinner and a movie. But nowadays, who has time for both? If you want to try a new and unique way to experience the movies, and get a good meal while you’re at it, than you need to stop by the Alamo Drafthouse. It’s one of those places that once you go once, you’ll be back again and again.

A Unique Movie Experience in New York

Alamo Drafthouse is the kind of place where one night they have a Star Trek marathon and another night they’ll have a Obscure Movie Trivia Contest. You never know what to expect at the Alamo Drafthouse, except that you’ll always get good food and good drinks for the whole family. Of course, the theatre also features all of the new releases, so you can see that movie you’ve been dying to see Friday night at the Alamo Drafthouse–not just films that are blasts from the past.

What’s on the Menu?

If you want to just stick to popcorn and a drink (both of which are refillable for free at the Drafthouse!) you’re more than welcome to do so. However, if you came specifically to this theatre because you were hungry and hoping to fill up on good eats, then here’s a preview of what’s on the menu at the Alamo in New York:

Snacks: There are a bunch of snack items for sale on the menu. Our favorites include the baked pretzel, fried dill pickles, and the spinach and artichoke dip.

Entrees: If you like burgers, you won’t be disappointed by the burgers at the Alamo Drafthouse. Choose between beef, chicken, or veggie, and then select from your choice of styles ranging from Royale with cheese (smoked bacon, cheddar, onion, leaf lettuce, tomato, mayo) to Hatch Green Chile (tortilla crisps, white cheese, red onion, and dijon mustard). If burgers aren’t your thing, they also have great salads and wraps, and some amazing pizzas! A popular pizza here is the mushroom and caramelized onion, and it’s highly recommended if you’re a mushroom lover!

Desserts and Drinks: Nearly as good as the snacks and entrees are the desserts and drinks here. Try the Mexican Chocolate (adult) Shake, with tequila, chocolate, and cinnamon, opt for a baked-to-order peanut butter banana cookie, purchase a bottle of wine, or stick to a simple beer. With a full bar and lots of yummy ice cream options, you’re sure to find a creation to please you.

Mix Up Your Friday Night

If normal movie theaters just aren’t cutting it any more, then come on by and see why the Alamo Drafthouse is rapidly becoming one of the newest, hottest places for Americans to have their night out. With plenty of family friendly movies, as well as plenty of ones for grownups only, this is a perfect place for you and your kids or you and your loved one.
