DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Opening this summer: a theater near you.

Austin-based theater chain Alamo Drafthouse — which serves food, beer and liquor to your seat while you enjoy your movie — announced Tuesday that its new Brooklyn location is scheduled to open this summer at 445 Gold St.

The seven-screen theater is in its final phase of construction at the new City Point development, at the intersection of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we cannot wait to bring the Alamo Drafthouse experience to Brooklyn,” founder and CEO Tim League said in a statement. 

“The impact on film from this region is indelible and expansive. Hopefully, we can add to that rich fabric and give fans, new and old, a place to honor the joy of cinema.”

The theater chain will screen both arthouse and independent releases, as well as Hollywood blockbusters in both 35mm film and digital formats.

The new location will show Alamo Drafthouse’s signature movie series like Terror Tuesday, Video Vortex and Girlie Night.

Special programming unique to Brooklyn and New York City will feature multi-course film feasts, live performances and appearances by filmmakers and stars.

“This city has the most adventurous audiences of anywhere in the world and our screens will be reflective of that,” Brooklyn Creative Manager Cristina Cacioppo said.

Like other Alamo Drafthouses, the Brooklyn location will provide moviegoers a full in-theater dining menu that will highlight local flavors and ingredients, as well as local brews on tap and hand-crafted cocktails. 

Best of all, the theater enforces a strict “no talking, no texting” policy.
