Coolest Luxury Movie Theatre Experience Ever is Coming to Boston
Editor's note: This article was written by a Townsquare Media Northern New England contributor and may contain the individual's views, opinions or personal experiences.
Homemade food and custom cocktails ordered and served from your luxury, reclining theatre seat while watching a first-run movie, participating in a Q&A with celebrities, and viewing repertory classics is just some of what you can expect with this absolutely wonderful experience.
When I heard the Alamo Drafthouse was coming to its first New England location in Boston, I did a little hop-and-scream.
It truly is the best film, food, and drink establishment, where you order and dine from your reclining seats regardless of if you want movie theatre popcorn or a full meal.
Look, I know it's a movie theatre, but it's an experience that truly elevates this to a different level. The press release sums this opening up nicely.
Founded in 1997, Alamo Drafthouse has been heralded for unique programming events, great food and drinks, and high exhibition standards, earning accolades including “Best Theater Ever” by Time Magazine and “The Coolest Theater in the World” by Wired. A September 2018 Market Force Information survey of nearly 13,000 moviegoers across the country gave Alamo Drafthouse the #1 ranking for Favorite Movie Theater, Best Service, and all food and beverage-related categories.
Of course, similar theaters exist, but trust me, Alamo knows what's up when it comes to making it more than just a night out at the movies. That includes the ambiance and atmosphere that elevates it.
No, they're not paying me to say this. I just simply love them. They aren't everywhere, so this is exciting and makes it that much more special for those of us in New Hampshire and Maine, because it will require a day trip or getaway weekend to enjoy what Alamo Drafthouse is all about.
As I mentioned above, this is the first-ever New England location and will beautifully sit in downtown Boston in the Seaport district. What a perfect location for this 10-screen theatre with its signature mix of first-run films, documentaries, and foreign language films, as well as specialty programming, classics, movie parties, and those Q&As I mentioned. The food is mouthwatering and made from scratch, and there's also an amazing drink and cocktail menu.
The luxury seating is in every single auditorium, with super comfy reclining seats with footrests. The place is ready to open early next year in 2023, so get ready for this incredible movie and dining experience. Yes, there's top-of-the-line surround sound, too.
There's also a full-service bar and restaurant as well as a vintage movie poster shop with lots of movie-going goodness for cinema junkies.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy the Alamo Drafthouse for a day or night out in Boston.
