Time Out says
We’re not sure if there’s a group of people more passionate about their movie theater than Austinites when it comes to Alamo Drafthouse. This cinema and restaurant rolled in one started in Austin but has since made its way around the country, and the flagship location is nestled in the middle of Sixth Street. Besides current movies, the Ritz hosts one-of-a-kind signature series like Terror Tuesday, where you can see classic horror hits; Weird Wednesday, where you can embrace the weird with some oddball flicks; and Master Pancake events, which pair movies with sidesplitting live comedy. The unconventional previews and famously strict “no talking or texting during the show” rule add to the charm of this local favorite.
