First of all this theater has a parking garage and it is very congested around the theater. I prefer the Slaughter theater but they very often don't show the movies I want to see at that theater. I ordered the herb park fries with the...More

Went to see Manchester By the Sea Saturday. I really like this Alamo but getting there is a pain. Not the closest to my house but they play movies I can't see at the Slaughter Alamo. They have a great beer selection and the Parmesan...More
