The concept of Denver’s Alamo Drafthouse is not necessarily a new one in combining films, food and drink but the approach is. The newest of the extremely popular theaters, based of course in Texas, is located in Denver’s Aspen Grove Shopping Center on South Santa Fe Drive. The theater not only offers fantastic films, both new runs and classics, but also boasts a huge rotating selection of hand-crafted beers. Contained within the impressive walls is a full service kitchen offering a delectable menu to patrons by way a waitstaff that rivals the Red Army.
What makes the Alamo Drafthouse unique is their approach to the movie-going experience. While seated in the theater, movie fans are not subjected to any pre-screening advertising. Once the features begin, there is a strict no talking or texting policy that will get violators escorted quickly to the exit. The theater is all about enjoying great films.
Denver’s Alamo Drafthouse opened its doors on March 25th and featured a morning ribbon cutting ceremony with guest of honor Pam Grier, notably of Foxy Brown and many other classics. In the evening the theater hosted a welcome mixer in the “Glass Half-Full” bar followed by an extremely interesting Q&A with Ms. Grier and her induction into the BadAss Hall of Fame with Devin Faraci of BadAss Digest.
The theater will play host to many fun and exciting events surrounding the film industry, including the 2013 Mile High Horror Film Festival, so check the website often and enjoy.
