This is the first time my husband and I have been to a place like this, and we are hooked. You not only get to watch a movie in a clean uncluttered environment, you get to eat and drink throughout the whole movie. When you first walk in you pick an assinged seat and pay $7 each person! Thats almost... More

This place is amazing. Kansas City apparently has amazing movie theaters. The Alamo draft house is very impressive. We parked at Concentinos for free. When you arrive, you get to pick your exact seat. Also, they have a strict texting and talking policy. The best part is the food. The waiters quietly attend to you while the movie is playing....

Definetly the future of movie going. Food, soda, and alcohol. Can't beat it. Very comfortable seating and nice venue. Hopefully something similar pops up in my neck of the woods someday!

I love Alamo Drafthouse, I seldom go anywhere else to see a movie! It's wonderful to have a dinner-and-a-movie date in one place and the food offerings are restaurant quality. Add the availability of adult beverages and an age restriction that prevents people from using the movies as a babysitter and you've got a good time at the movies.

Theater serves good food and good beer, and does not allow small children (regardless of parents being there) into some R-rated movies. I love being able to go, have a beer, a hot pretzel and watch my movie and not hear a screaming kid. There is nice space between the seats, easy ordering system though at times they are a... More

This was the first time that I visited a movie theater that offered alcohol. The outside of the theater looked nice as well as the area where you could order drinks. I was disappointed when I didn't see that you could buy popcorn or soda. No big deal. However, when I first walked into the room for which the movie... More

I have taken my kids here to see movies twice- Great experience both times. Service was good and kids had a blast, I would definitely go back. Prices seem to be fair , really enjoyed bottomless popcorn.

Just saw the Jack Ryan movie. 6 total in the theater. Three times a server came in, I didn't yell at him so I never got his attention. Had to go to the lobby for the drink refill. Bartender lady is especially nice and friendly. Got to listen to a 2 hour conversation during the movie by the 2 women... More

The alamo drafthouse is a great place to go for a meal and movie together. the food is a little pricey but considering you are watching a movie with a meal makes the difference.

the food prices have gone up and the quality is not terrible but not good at all. the Greek wrap has lost its taste, the pizzas are bland and tasteless and the menus have completely changed and there are less items and apps. Save your money and eat before or elsewhere afterwards. the waiters and waitress's still do an excellent... More
