Alamo Drafthouse Franchise Opportunities – History

The Alamo Drafthouse was founded by Tim and Karrie League in 1977 on Colorado Street in the warehouse district of Austin, Texas. The first theater only featured one screen and originally showcased second run titles at a discounted admission; however, within its first year of operation the venue caught the attention of many and became the host of various film premieres and visiting filmmakers. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema currently has theaters throughout Texas and has begun expanding nationwide to New York, Colorado, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more.

Entertainment Weekly called Alamo Drafthouse ‘The #1 theater in America’ and it was named the ‘Coolest Movie Theater in the World’ by Wired.com. With these awards and the unmatchable movie experience at Alamo Drafthouse, it is no surprise that the brand is spreading quickly.
