“A Great Way to Watch a Movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Alamo Drafthouse is a truly original idea that started in Texas and made its way to Winchester. Imagine going to see a first run movie with your family and friends in stadium style seating and being able to enjoy great food and drink while you watch, The Alamo has a staggering selection of beers and a decent wine selection. Plus you can enjoy everything from uniquely made pizzas to generous sandwiches, burgers and an array of appetizers. It's a great date night because you can combine dinner and a movie all in one. One hint, go early because this place has become so popular that they recommend you arrive 45 minutes early. Plus the convenience of purchasing your ticket online assures you of a seat. There is always something on the screen that helps pass the time until the feature starts, plus they have theme nights and specials shows.

“hot sauce and blue cheese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

the movies are what they are. I like the hot wings here, but the best thing on the menu is the burger with blue chees and hot sauce. Comes with some fries. Can't see any of it, but tastes great.

“Hobbit and goodies”

Went with a large group to see the Hobbit. As always, the Alamo is clean and tidy. Seats are roomy. Tables/menus etc are abundant. Staff is courteous and food was great :)

“Nice Theater....decent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been to this theater more times than I can count. We like the seating and that you can order food or drink while in the theater. The food is nothing to brag about...I prefer nachos or popcorn instead of a main course. If you want to drink then you can go to the bar before the movie or get a drink while watching.
