Alamo Drafthouse

7301 S. Santa Fe Drive Littleton, CO 80120 | Southwest Denver Suburbs | 303-730-2470

Location Description:

Turn off your cell phones (no, really — turn ’em off) and leave the kids with a sitter, because the fun-loving Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, which made its Colorado debut in spring 2013 at Aspen Grove in Littleton, came with a movie-party reputation. The Austin, Texas-based chain offers a variety of programming, from genre film to cult classics to one-of-a-kind events with a local twist. And all of it comes with a tableside menu of burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches and brunch items, along with an extensive list of mostly Colorado craft beers – on draft and in cans and bottles – as well as wine and beer- and liquor-infused shakes. This is movie-going that makes your living room obsolete.
