Time Out says

Inside the long-anticipated Brooklyn outpost of film-geek haven Alamo Drafthouse, you’ll find a hallway lined with all sorts of grotesque curiosities: death masks, model fetuses and even monkey skeletons. But walk through and you’ll find that the macabre is served with a side of cocktails. At the theater’s house bar—which is modeled after 19th-century panoptica attractions and displays many relics of that era from Berlin wax-house Castans Panopticum—tuck into cocktails like the Lolita Nymph (Brooklyn gin, orange-and-basil shrub, orange blossom) and the Butcher of Hanover (Fernet Branca, Carpano Antica Formula, IPA, lemon and Angostura) before your movie starts.
