Editorial review from Citysearch

I love this place. It is very laid back, great food, adult beverages and the latest movies. But don't think it is so laid back that others can get out of order. They are very strict about that and will ask the person to leave if they are disturbing others. The waiters are very friendly and helpful but quite during the films. If the movie is popular, get there early as it fills up fast.

Austin's best movie theater. Unique

Austin's best movie theater. Unique programming, cool vibe, great beer. Not everyone wants to eat in the dark, but don't skip dessert!

Ehh

It wasn't the best place, but it makes it easier for dinner and a movie in one night! The parking sucked, the food is good, but it take forever and my date was freezing.

bring a sweater

Ladies bring a sweater, it's always cold here. And come early. . . parking isn't easy but you can park behind it usually. Otherwise FABULOUS theater.

Not your average movie theater

Alamo is the perfect place to hang out on a Friday night. They offer a variety of movie selections that range from the classics, indie films and current box office hits. They also have themed nights, sing-a-longs and the always hilarious ""master-pancake"" theater where commentators provide a comedy show during the movie.

The goat cheese salad, spicy bleu burger and the peanut-buttter chocolate shake are great choices but you can't go wrong on this menu! They variety of beer is also a major plus.

My favorite place to watch a movie

After theaters have raised their prices to nearly 10 dollars and made you pay that again if you wanted something to eat made Alamo a breath of fresh air.

The food is good and the staff is entertaining. The events they host are my favorite. Weekly they have free showings of my favorite TV shows like 'Lost' or 'Battlestar Galactica', or the UT game. Their ""Master Pancake"" and ""sing-along"" movies make going a unique experience you wont get anywhere else. The compilation of movie/TV clips they play while you wait for the movie to start makes me want to get there early.

Its hard to get ahold of the waiter during the movie which makes it difficult to ask for refills or any questions you might have.

Very Unfriendly Business Practice

My family and I received $60 worth of gift cards for this place a while back. The cards got tucked away and a little over a year later I stumble across them and decide to redeem one on a movie. I go to their website to check the balance on the cards and found the link buggy and generally confounding. I call the number provided and ask the employee if they can pull the balance on the cards for me. He says yes and after a few minutes, tells me I have $20, $2.75 and $10 respectively. I ask again if he's sure they'll redeem them even though the cards are over a year old, he assures me they will. So I hop in the car drive across town to the South Lamar location and plop down the card to the guy at the counter. He pushes the card back at me and says ""these are expired dude, they've got Backlot here on the back. We ain't issued those in forever"". So I tell him the phone story and he says he don't make the rules...sorry! I tell him that kinda stinks don't ya think, and turn to leave when he adds oh so sarcastically ""have a nice day buddy!"".
This is somewhat of a neighbor friendly establishment I thought, so it's especially disappointing to learn they use the same ""breakage"" marketing mind set as the mega mall stores and credit card bilkers. I say it's very simple, someone pays you for a service, you provide it. A one year expiration on my cash is unacceptable. You've let down you're end of the bargain and for it, bought a lot of very negative advertising for yourself. Have a nice day, buddy!

Rude Staff

I went to to Alamo South tonight to see the new Bond movie and from start finish every employee was rude and had a snotty attitude. I asked for a ticket to the 7Pm show and the guy at the counter who looked liked he fell into a tackle box just kinda huffed and pointed to to the sign that it was sold out. So I thought about it and then came back and asked this girl for a ticket to the next show. Since I had 3 hours to go, I asked if there was a good place to eat around there. She was like what's wrong with our food? I was like how am I supposed to eat here if the movies not for three hours? and she was like oh duh. So I went to eat and came back and sat on the couch waiting for the movie to open up. When I did I got up and walked in the theater only to have a guy stop me and tell me I had to go wait in line. I told him I had been sitting on the couch outside for about 2 hours and no one said anything about a line. I was like c'mon cut me a little slack here man. He mumbled something like can't help you buddy and tossed me out. I should have been first one in and instead he made me be last, because he decided to pull rank on me when he knew I had been out there the whole time. Once inside it took forever to get a small order of popcorn and when I asked for a refill on the soda it like 20 minutes later before it came. Also two clumsy waiters dropped dishes throughout the movie making a really annoying crashing sound and took their time cleaning it up. I won't be back anytime soon. Not worth the price you pay. Go somewhere else really!
