Poag Shopping Centers is pleased to announce the addition of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – LaCenterra. Earlier in June, Alamo Drafthouse announced the latest theater expansion, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – LaCenterra, opened for discounted staff training days on July 2, 2018. The theater’s official Grand Opening will be celebrated Friday, July 20th and feature the release of two highly anticipated sequels: MAMMA MIA! – HERE WE GO AGAIN and THE EQUALIZER 2.
“The addition of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will further solidify LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch’s position as a premier dining and entertainment destination for our customers in the Houston market and will draw visitors from the surrounding region,” said Josh Poag, President & CEO, Poag Shopping Centers. “Poag is committed to providing an unparalleled customer experience and continues to deliver on that promise through the addition of exciting new tenants like Alamo Drafthouse.”
This state-of the art eight-screen dine-in theater is located on the southeast section of LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, which is along the Grand Parkway about three miles south of Interstate 10. Alamo Drafthouse guests will find ample free parking in a brand new parking garage, which is located directly next to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – LaCenterra.
“We are thrilled to introduce a new and improved Alamo Drafthouse experience to Houston film lovers,” said Neil Billingsley-Michaelsen, president and CEO of Triple Tap Ventures LLC, the owner and operator of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations in Houston. “Alamo LaCenterra will feature cutting-edge laser projection, luxurious theater recliners, an expansive and updated menu, and 46 craft beers on tap. We cannot wait to provide our guests the Alamo Drafthouse’s signature movie going experience in this state-of-the-art facility.”
Alamo Drafthouse LaCenterra will offer full in-theater dining service and screen new releases, classics, independent films, foreign movies and Alamo Drafthouse’s unique signature programming. All theaters will feature 4K digital projection and state-of-the-art digital surround sound. Additionally, each auditorium eliminates the traditional front row, ensuring every seat in the house allows for a great viewing experience. The theater will have an adjacent bar/lounge with outdoor patio seating, serving up a large selection of craft beers on tap and handcrafted cocktails. The lounge will also feature an extensive list of popular and hard to find American Whiskeys.
The new Alamo Drafthouse Cinema LaCenterra will replace Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – Mason Park in Katy, TX. Alamo Drafthouse Mason Park officially closed on Thursday, June 21.
Alamo Drafthouse LaCenterra continues the company’s high standards of delivering the best possible theatrical experience to its guests including Alamo Drafthouse’s famous and strict “No Talking or Texting” during the film. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy curated pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, Alamo Drafthouse presents a pre-show of rare (and often hilarious) clips specifically tailored to the feature film.
