Alamo Drafthouse Announces "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as Latest Drafthouse Recommends Title

February 21, 2014 // // Austin, TX - The Alamo Drafthouse is thrilled to announce Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as the fifth Drafthouse Recommends title. Drafthouse Recommends spotlights first-run movies with the Alamo stamp of approval to indicate that we love this title and we think everyone should make an effort to see it. Our goal is to highlight groundbreaking, innovative and intelligent films we believe deserve to be seen by as many people as possible.

"In Wes Anderson, we are witnessing the evolution of a modern day directorial master. With GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL his style is at an absolute peak, but like MOONRISE KINGDOM before it, the true magic comes from the small friendships and genuine human interactions. We are proud to vouch for GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL as the newest entry in our 'Drafthouse Recommends' program," said Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse Founder and CEO.

The Alamo Drafthouse magazine, BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH., is highlighting "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as its featured title for March. Editor-in-Chief Devin Faraci says, "There are certain filmmakers who compel you to buy a ticket opening night no matter what, and Wes is one of those."

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

This is Anderson's eighth feature and possibly his most mature and realized film to date. Wes Anderson is one of our most recognizable auteurs, and "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is a triumph of that meticulous whimsy and defiant anachronism that define his oeuvre. Alamo Drafthouse is an enormous fan of Anderson, and have supported and loved his films from 'Bottle Rocket' to the 'Royal Tenenbaums' to 'Moonrise Kingdom'. It is only natural that his most recent title should become the latest in our Drafthouse Recommends series.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" opens at select Alamo Drafthouse theaters in March.

Select Alamo Drafthouse locations are giving "The Grand Budapest Hotel" the royal treatment in the form of a decadent feast featuring duck, roasted with olives and rabbit. Visit to purchase your tickets.
