Retro Movie Delight

Grabbed a movie here to burn some time & ended up having an absolutely delightful time. Small cozy theatre, with waited service & a menu completely listing as much diversity as one could imagine in a cinema. Great location, with fun, friendly staff. Well worth the experience.

Can't say enough about the staff at Alamo at The Ritz. The Drafthouse's film choices are always on point and the staff delivers in seeing to that the floor stays quiet for viewing. A must stop for any story enjoyer. I will admit that people eating during a film is less than ideal for my tastes. But it is an... More

What a fun venue! Got dragged to this, but had a lot of fun watching a campy "surprise" movie while enjoying a beer.

The Master Pancake guys were hilarious! You can tell they've rehearsed a lot of the jokes but it was still great. Sure the theater is old but that's the point, it was exceptionally clean. Their beer prices are on par with anything else on 6th street, not the standard movie theater ripoff pricing at other chains. The burger was innovative... More

It was our first time going to the Alamo Drafthouse Movie Theater. We went to see a classic...Thin Red Line....best part was that the Storyboard Artist for the movie is a Austin Local and spoke before and after the movie. Great insight into the movie. The food was good for the price and reasonable for inside a movie theater...its not... More

The best cinema experience I've had. Unique, fun, relaxed and surprisingly great. The relaxed and easy going set up of in house dining while watching the movies on the big screen is a must for everyone. The food is amazing as is the drink selection. Staff are cool and quick to serve without hardly an interruption to your movie night.... More

I'd read about the Alamo theaters and couldn't wait to visit them during SXSW 2015. The Ritz is located on 6th street and super cozy. Staff was attentive and friendly. Seats are large and comfortable and the film was bright and sounded great. Going to an Alamo theater is a quintessential Austin experience not to miss.

I really enjoyed the concept of Alamo Drafthouse. Although The Ritz is a bit older, and needs some updating, the service and comfort was awesome. Our server was really friendly. We ordered the loaded fries which were not very good, kind of cold and the melted cheese was kind of hard and the whole dish was tasteless. But the chicken... More

This is a smaller, older theater, but boy is it loaded with character! The screen I saw was not huge but it was still a joy to see a movie here. Seats are large, comfortable, and reserved when you buy your ticket. The projected film was sharp and bright, and the sound well-balanced. Wait staff circulate to take food and... More
