Newest, Largest Alamo Drafthouse Grand Opening

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:13 PM CDT

This morning the Alamo Drafthouse is out to prove that bigger does mean better. Today is the grand opening of the newest, and now the largest, Alamo theater.

The Lakeline location in Northwest Austin has 36,000 square feet, ten screens, an ape-themed lobby and a full service bar.    

Founder Tim League helped build the original Lake Creek theater with his own hands, but says it wasn't too hard to say goodbye to his baby. He says the time has come for a major upgrade.

"We've taken a lot of lessons we've learned over the past few years about building theaters and we're really proud of this. This is as good as we've done. It sounds great, looks great and we've made a lot of new technical inovations with this one," said Donald Scott of Alamo Drafthouse.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening is set for 10 a.m. In addition,  today is being declared "Alamo Drafthouse Day" by the city of Austin.
