I really have no interest in visiting other movie theaters after going to the Drafthouse. You can watch a movie and at the same time be served food just prepared instead of waiting on some awful concession line. Lots of movies to see. Atmosphere is casual, but at the Drafthouse you feel like it is meant to be serious business.... More

When you only have time for a movie OR dinner, COME HERE FOR BOTH! I recommend the pizza, the taste is awesome! Was pleasantly surprised. The pre-show is also so much fun. Be sure to arrive when the doors open to see it all. Enjoy!

We are big fans of Alamo Drafthouse, but this location just wasn't quite up to par with the other locations we have been to in San Antonio and Dallas. Service was s-l-o-w and took forever for them to even take our paper order. Drinks were spilled by the waitress behind us, leaving our feet all sticky throughout the movie with... More

I've gone twice in the past month and this has proven itself an awesome stop for new movies and dinner. The first time, we went to see Mad Max: Fury Road and instead of the typical movie promos, they played the original promo for the original Mad Max and interview of the original cast and of the director about the...

We were in town for Air Force BMT Graduation weekend. My son earned an extra "town pass" for Sunday. He had heard about this theatre with food. I googled it and off we went. It was very close to our hotel. We paid $7.00 to get in. We choose our seats with an electronic map at the register. We were... More

We brought 7 of our kids and 2 grand kids. They automatically looked at us weird. Then they asked how many tickets we paid for. All 11 of course. They acted like we were stealing . Then someone followed us. They said that we had to sit together. My oldest was mad cause he is 17. They said you had... More

This is the first time I have been to a movie theater like this, and I loved the experience! The ticket price was the same at the usual theater I go to. Our family of five sat at one long table in the theater. The table has food/drink menu along with pens and paper to place orders. We made it... More

No more crowded theaters, no more trying to look around people's heads, no more waiting in the line at concession stand. The Alamo Drafthouse at Stone Oak is comfortable and convenient. Watch a movie while being served by very attentive staff.

They need ushers in there to better manage their seating. We got there right when the movie started and there were people peppered all over the place to the point where the only 2 seats that were together were in the very front row. Yet, there were singles all over the place. The service was good; the beer and wine... More

I wanted to watch Sin City 2 and this was the only theatre that had it at the moment. Entrance was $10, which seemed a little pricey (there are days and hours that are less expensive). The room looked kinda old-fashioned, with lots of space between the screen and the seats on a horizontal manner, so if you're on the... More
