Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is headed to the High Desert, just down the road from our town. On Thursday, Triple Tap Ventures is unveiled plans for a second Alamo Drafthouse location on El Paso’s East Side.
“A second location means more opportunities for El Pasoans to enjoy the unique Alamo Drafthouse Cinema experience,” said Neil Billingsley-Michaelsen, CEO and President of Triple Tap Ventures LLC. “Since Alamo Montecillo opened, the community has been very supportive of that location. We are now extremely excited to be able to reach an even larger community of El Paso movie lovers with our upcoming East Side location.”
The new theater will be located at Monteverde, an upcoming 30-acre mixed-use development at Loop 375 and Pellicano.
The new Alamo Drafthouse is a 10 screen theater with approximately 1,000 luxury recliners and an attached full-service bar and restaurant, with over forty craft beers on tap.
The new East Side location’s 10 screens will pair an extensive made-from-scratch food and beverage menu with the very best new releases, iconic special events, and the company’s unique take on repertory programming.
Each theater will be equipped with top-of-the-line digital 4K projection and dynamic surround sound, and fully outfitted with luxury recliners, ensuring every seat in the house offers a viewing experience of unparalleled comfort.
It will also feature The Big Show, Alamo Drafthouse’s Large Format Theater concept that showcases the very best presentation available today, including Dolby Atmos sound technology and one of the largest screens in the Alamo Drafthouse brand.
The new location joins Triple Tap Ventures’ Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo, which has served the West Side community since May of 2016. Triple Tap Ventures also operates Alamo Drafthouse franchises in Houston and Lubbock.
Alamo Drafthouse El Paso’s new location will employ approximately 200 people, including a Creative Manager who oversees programming and promotions, a General Manager, a Kitchen Manager/Chef, and Operation Managers.
Details on how and when to apply will be announced as the cinema nears its opening date.
The theater is expected to open in early 2020.
