Alamo Drafthouse will open its doors at 7301 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton on Monday, March 25. The first Colorado link in the Texas-based cinema chain -- which offers food and drinks during screenings -- boasts seven screens, 900 seats, 32 local beers on tap, and an extensive menu featuring burgers, pizzas, salads, wraps, snacks and treats. Westword's Danielle Lirette stopped by yesterday for a preview.
The company plans to begin construction on two more locations in the Denver area in 2014. Call 720-588-4107 for more information, including showtimes.
