Brandon and Chris first met as college roommates and eventually went into business together to become the first franchise partner of the Alamo Drafthouse.
"Brandon, Chris and their team have been with us from the very beginning of the Alamo Drafthouse expansion. Looking back on our ten-year partnership, I couldn't be prouder of the community they have built in San Antonio. I look forward to our next decade together," said Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO.
Alamo Drafthouse combines dinner, drinks, films and events, all under one roof. The theaters have been heralded for their unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades like "Best Theater Ever" (Time Magazine) and "the coolest theater in the world" (Wired).
