Hill Country area movie fans who like dinner and a movie, have it made in Austin. The Alamo Drafthouse has been providing just that, since 1997.

Movie-goers placed their meal orders with the waiters and enjoyed watching the show. Live music performed by local bands also accompanied some of the movies.

After the opening of an additional theater showing first-run films, the original theater began showing independent films, documentaries and even audience participation events.
