Alamo Drafthouse offers free movies for first responders

After the recent series of bombings in Austin, Alamo Drafthouse is offering free admission to first responders for a limited time, the theater chain announced Friday.

According to Drafthouse, the offer is in gratitude for the work police, firefighters and EMS have done to keep the city safe over “a long month.” 

From the Drafthouse’s website:

So for the next month, Friday, March 23rd through Wednesday, April 25th, first responders get free admission to any Alamo Drafthouse screening (excluding special events) at any time on any day of the week, at all six Austin locations.

According to Drafthouse, the offer is good for one free ticket per transaction, per day. The offer can only be redeemed in person at an Austin location, and first responders must bring their current work ID or badge.

Other local businesses, like Pinthouse Pizza and Iron Works BBQ, have offered similar deals for first responders this week.
