Texas movie chain Alamo Drafthouse Cinema plans to open a location in Downtown Brooklyn at City Point in 2015, The Wall Street Journal reported over the weekend. The Austin-based business is known for table service and shows a mix of indie and mainstream first-run movies. A 900-seat, seven-screen theater is planned for the as-yet-unbuilt portion of the City Point development known as Phase II, where the DeKalb Market used to be. Table service for drinks and food is getting to be quite a trend since Governor Cuomo OK’d serving alcohol in theaters last year. Nitehawk, Videology, and indieScreen offer it in Williamsburg, as does the reRun Gastropub movie theater in Dumbo. Alamo is also planning outposts on the Upper West Side and in Yonkers. The theater has been known to hold themed events such as ’80s singalongs and movies paired with a special menu, the Journal noted.
