Fantastic Fest 2013 Location Announced

Updated: Monday, May 13 2013, 07:21 PM CDT

There was hope that the Alamo South Lamar would be ready for Fantastic Fest in September, but the reality is it won't be. With construction, there are always delays, even in perpetually dry Texas.

Alamo Drafthouse statement on the location:

"As soon as we knew that South Lamar wouldn't be able to host Fantastic Fest, the Alamo Drafthouse weighed the impact on our in-town and out-of-town friends and guests of the festival, along with each option's ability to adhere to the core values and spirit on which Fantastic Fest was built. In the end, they settled on a space that allows us to keep the Fantastic Fest family under one roof while still providing easy access for Austin residents and hotels for those traveling.

The soon-to-be completed Alamo Lakeline location will be the home for Fantastic Fest 2013. The theater is situated off Highway 183 in Northwest Austin and will be completed this summer. It will have 10 screens, a bar featuring a large selection of beers and is located near several hotels. The theater will also feature a 35mm projector which will allow us to continue to support a wide range of exhibition formats."

Details are still being ironed out regarding an events and arcade location, as well as nearby hotel discounts. The Alamo Drafthouse says, "We look forward to all of our friends joining us on this adventure and helping us to make this the biggest and best Fantastic Fest yet!"
