About Alamo Drafthouse
The cinema itself is recognized as one of the most premiere in the industry. The Seaport location has 10 screens equipped with “state-of-the-art sound and projection.” Watch the high-resolution display from your ultra-comfy recliner. Plus, Seaport is the 40th Alamo Drafthouse location, but the first to include heated seats!
Scratch-made food and beverage
The cinema’s food comes made from scratch and served at your personal table attached to your recliner. A signature characteristic of Alamo cinemas is curating a menu inspired by the food on screen. This means peppermint shakes while watching Elf, or an exciting special menu inspired by the Hunger Games coming soon, noted Director of Food and Beverage at the soft opening, Trish Eichelberger.
The Truffle, Herb, Parmesan Popcorn is downright delicious, and don’t skip their buttermilk brined fried chicken. They also offer bottomless popcorn, and the refill comes straight to you. Many items on the standard menu are inspired by the home state of the first Alamo Drafthouse that opened in 1997 Texas.
The Press Room
The cinema also features a unique standalone, “The Press Room,” which functions as a letterpress print shop and features over 10,000 framed vintage movie ads. The centerpiece of The Press Room is a vintage 1940s press used to created many of the media items on the wall, and special prints for new releases and Alamo’s famous movie parties. The theater offers a scavenger hunt around the cinema to located some of the most historic pieces at the Seaport location.
