Alamo Drafthouse to introduce large-format auditoriums in Frisco, Denton, elsewhere

Joe Gross

 The Hollywood Reporter notes that the Alamo Drafthouse chain is introducing premium large-format theaters in several markets in the coming year, including Denton, Frisco, Woodbridge, Va., Woodbury, Minn., and St. Louis.

“The Big Show" auditoriums will  feature giant screens (reportedly a minimum of 66 feet), as well as recliner seats, immersive sound and 4K laser projection.

The ticket price for a Big Show auditorium is $18.

For $18 a ticket, should you be allowed to talk and text during the movie?
