Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slo-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets (up to an $18 value) to a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Westlakes. An additional charge of $2.50 per ticket applies for 3-D movies.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema offers a high-quality moviegoing experience with a clever marriage of talking pictures, delicious eats and drinks, and notorious anti-cell-phone vigilance. Featuring first-run films as well as independent works, the cinema’s concept combines theater with dining in a casual environment of classic movie décor, stonily accented walls, and stamped concrete floors for extra easy walking. Treat your date or a friend accidentally glued to your elbow to one of a variety of films from some of the top movie studios. Each theater is organized with alternating rows of seats and bench-style tables stocked with menus, paper, and pencils. Viewers have the option of ordering premium beers, wines, and an assortment of delicious eats—which are not priced-up to accommodate first-run costs—from a Philly cheesesteak sandwich and a Moonstruck margherita pizza to pecan pie and Milk Duds.

At the Alamo Drafthouse, ads are never played before feature films; instead, the cinema substitutes various pre-show short films. Compulsive texters and cell phone talkers beware—disturbing other audience members can get you a warning or a humiliating trip to the dunking stool.

All showings are 18+ only, except all ages showings for which viewers under 18 are required to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Alamo Drafthouse

Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. Alamo’s ninja servers pick up written food and drink orders throughout the movie and serve moviegoers directly at their seat. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook.

Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as Entertainment Weekly, which called it “one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,” and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."
