The Grand Opening celebration continues throughout the month of May, culminating with an ALADDIN-themed Bazaar to be held in and around the theater and Vetted Well on Saturday, May 25.

“Since opening the first Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson in 2013, it has always been our goal to one day open a theater on the Tarrant County side of DFW," said Alamo Drafthouse North Texas CEO Bill DiGaetano. "As a resident of North Tarrant myself, I am thrilled to finally open Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills and share our concept with friends, neighbors, and residents throughout the area.”

The 8 screen, full-service dine-in theater has combined seating for 927 guests, including a 240 seat Premium Large Format theater, and features luxury recliners in every auditorium. Alamo Drafthouse’s scratch-made menus are often themed to the specific film on the screen, and the North Richland Hills theater will feature an expanded menu designed for the younger crowd. Continuing the family-friendly theme, Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills is the first of the company’s locations to feature a separate party room, available for kids birthday parties and other special events. Guests of all ages will instantly recognize the theater’s signature decor, as an incredible variety of vintage Walt Disney movie posters line the theater’s hallways, alongside modern movie poster reinterpretations of Walt Disney classics by the famous art and collectibles company Mondo.

Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills also features an attached full-service bar and restaurant, Vetted Well. Featuring 31 craft beers (20 from North Texas brewers) and one root beer on tap, craft cocktails, the same great menu that’s available in the theaters, nine big-screen TVs for sports fans, and a large outdoor patio that includes a kid and pet-friendly event and play space with yard games, guests are invited to enjoy Vetted Well whether they have plans to watch a film or not.

Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills 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 policy. Each auditorium is equipped with state-of-the-art Sony 4K Digital Cinema Laser Phosphor Projectors and 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound. Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes 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.
