Alamo Drafthouse

Nearly four years in the making, the Alamo Drafthouse is finally expanding beyond its first Colorado location deep in Littleton with a new flagship in Denver along the West Colfax corridor. The new Alamo Sloan's Lake is the first big piece of a major redevelopment of the historic neighborhood and the first cinema – complete with famed food service right to your seat and a strict no-talking/no-texting policy alongside quality programming – to ensconce itself in that part of town. Boasting eight screens of state-of-the-art 4K movie magic (but sadly no 35mm for true film cineastes), the theater is poised to welcome the many fans it gained in Littleton and introduce many more to the legend of the Alamo Drafthouse name, which has been enchanting viewers in more cities than ever before. Alongside the theater experience, the Alamo will open the doors to Barfly, its highly designed tavern that nods to the Beat poets who once roamed the dirty streets and bars on Colfax, with themed art and a special stage featuring a rotating slate of performers to keep things moving for guests before or after the film.
