Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline prepares for grand opening
At 35,900 square feet and with 944 seats, the newest version of the Austin original will be the largest theater in the rapidly growing Alamo Drafthouse Cinema LLC chain.
The company is hiring kitchen staff, bartenders and waiters.

The Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek, which is located down the road, will show its last movie on July 21.
“I built the original Lake Creek Alamo with my own two hands,” said Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse CEO and founder. “I am excited that more skilled craftsmen than myself have replaced it with a brand new state-of-the-art cinema for the neighborhood.”
Those craftsmen have been provided by general contractor Zapalac/Reed Construction Co. of Austin. The architect was Hodge and Associates in Dallas.
Alamo Drafthouse has another theaterunder construction at Lamar Union on South Lamar Boulevard. There are five other Texas theaters under construction or in development, with more theaters on tap in Michigan, California and New York.
