Alamo Drafthouse isn’t the only theater in town offering booze.
AMC is now serving alcohol at its Barton Creek 14 theater inside Barton Creek Square mall, at 2901 S. Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360).
In addition to Alamo, it joins Violet Crown Cinema, Flix Brewhouse and the Moviehouse in serving adult beverages.
Movie-goers can enjoy beer, wine and mixed drinks at the theater’s new bar or take their drinks with them into the auditoriums.
Unlike Alamo, AMC doesn’t have waitstaff inside its auditoriums. Drinks have to be ordered from the bar.
“This has been a concept that has been very popular for us,” AMC spokesman Ryan Noonan said.
Barton Creek 14 is the national chain’s sole Central Texas location. Across the U.S., AMC has about 350 theaters.
