DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — After some delays, Austin-based theater chain Alamo Drafthouse has finally announced its opening night.
The seven-screen theater, which was originally slated to open in August, confirmed the date in a tweet posted Tuesday.

The theater announced in late August that it would be pushing back its opening date due to a series of “setbacks.”
“It’s a lot more expensive and takes a lot longer than you think to do a construction project in New York,” founder Tim League told the Times.
Like the theater’s other locations, the Brooklyn Drafthouse will provide moviegoers with a full in-theater dining menu featuring local flavors and ingredients, as well as local brews on tap and hand-crafted cocktails.
The theater, which will screen both Hollywood blockbusters and independent releases, is known for its themed movie nights and strict no-texting and no-talking policy.
Tickets will go on sale at 8 a.m. Wednesday on the theater's website, according to a Drafthouse spokeswoman.
