May Programming: Mums, Musicals, & Marty

Mother's Day is on May 9th (set a reminder!), the perfect time to celebrate cinema's most iconic mothers like The Bride and Edna Turnblad. But... why not also look back at a few legendary Hollywood musicals to hype ourselves up for June's IN THE HEIGHTS? And while we're at it, how about slotting in a few films directed by the one and only Martin Scorsese?

Oh, and if we say "Mum" and not "Mom," that's a great excuse to slip in Brendan Fraser's THE MUMMY and THE MONSTER SQUAD. Now, if only we had a punchy, alliterative title for this weird collection of awesome May madness...

Badass Moms, Broadway's finest, Scorsese's most watchable... and Brendan Fraser.

Our Story

Cold beer, good movies, and delicious snacks and meals; Alamo Drafthouse is dinner, drinks, movies and events, all under one roof. Our attention to detail in film presentation and programming has made us a second home to movie fans all over the planet and earned accolades from the likes of Entertainment Weekly (#1 theater in America), Wired.com (Coolest Movie Theater in the World) and Fandango.com (One of the Best Theaters in the Country).

We have zero tolerance for talking or cell phone use of any kind during movies, and we aren't afraid to kick anyone rude enough to start texting their friends during a show right out of the theater. We also hate it when other movie theaters make you watch advertisements after you've already paid to see the movie, so we're vigilant about never letting ads hit our screens - we've even turned down PSAs for great causes because we don't want ANYTHING to disrupt your experience of the show. Instead of ads or mind-numbing content named after the number of minutes you have to sit through it if you get to the theater early, we create custom preshows with content themed to most of the features we program.

We also take the same care with all of our food and drink offerings, and at every Alamo location you can find a strong core of casual dining options to accompany your movie as well as menu specials updated at least every three months. Cold beer and fine wines are on the menu at every location, with an emphasis on highlighting local breweries whenever possible. Select Alamo locations feature a full bar with liquor where we theme specialty cocktails around the movies of the day.

Innovation is at the heart of everything we strive for, so in addition to maintaining the latest and greatest in projection technology so that every show features crisp, bright digital presentations with booming surround sound, we also program repertory titles and special events you won't find anywhere else. Enjoy a break from our "no talking" policy by yelling out your favorite lines at one of our Quote-Along events. Or just enjoy slumber party classics like Dirty Dancing or Clueless back up on the big screen in an auditorium filled with like-minded fans at our monthly Champagne Cinema presentations.

Took our kids to their first Drive in Experience ,watching Monsters Inc last night. They loved it, and it was pretty nostalgic for the wife and I. Thanks for setting that up. I really missed movies during this covid-19 thing: glad to have this option
Just saw the news about Alamo Drafthouse about to reopen in Woodbridge. I think the cinema itself is doing everything possible to make it a safe environment, but here is where I hesitate: What is the protocol when a covidiot takes their mask off after they're seated? Will the staff wait for patrons to raise a flag on them, or will they just enforce the rules as a normal course of their work? Assume said covidiot puts their mask back on briefly after the staff issues a warning but takes it down again. If push comes to shove, will the staff have the authority or the interest to actually enforce the house rules in the middle of the movie? Or will they just let it slide?
Saw this on the back of the Ashburn Alamo. It’s like they predicted murder hornets!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
As someone who has supported Alamo, driven hours to go to the theater, bought lots of Mondo merchandise, this is so disheartening to see. If you don’t change your policy and give your employees the healthcare that can literally save their lives and the pay they need to stay in their homes and get the food they need you will have lost a customer for life.
Can we get this in Ashburn please? Can't get to woodbridge during the week!
Hi guys, when are you going to revise your food menu? It's due for a refresh. :) Love Ya!
Full house for White Christmas in Theater A (the biggest one) on Monday night, and the crew did its usual timely and courteous job. Thanks for another enjoyable event screening!!
Do not waste your time. Horrible theater! Under staffed. Do not order food if you expect to get it before the credits.
This place is horrible. Under staffed. Managers do not care. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.
Any chance of another Greatest Showman singalong? :)
What time does happy hour begin at the Woodbridge location?
Hi Cinephiles!! We are going to show 10 curated films in DC from Nov.7 - Nov.10. Don't miss the chance! Notable selections include King Hu’s wuxia classic A Touch of Zen (1971), the first Chinese-language film to win an award at the Cannes Film Festival; Hu Sang’s pioneering historical drama Long Live the Missus! (1947); and Taiwanese icon Sylvia Chang’s romantic comedy Siao Yu (1995), which was co-written by Ang Lee (whose erotic period drama, NC-17 version Lust, Caution will also be screening at the festival). Also showing are some recent, critically acclaimed debuts by women filmmakers such as Lina Wang (A First Farewell, 2018) and Congcong Teng (Send Me to the Clouds, 2019). DCCFF is also proud to announce a screening of I Am Another You (2017), the second film by Nanfu Wang, the director of this year’s Sundance hit, One Child Nation. More details can be found on the event page below! Hope see you all there!
