March 28, 2018 // Franchising.com // Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas - Since arriving in North Texas in 2013, five Alamo Drafthouse Cinema theaters have opened or been announced in the cities of Dallas, Richardson, Las Colinas and Denton. Today, Alamo Drafthouse DFW is pleased to announce the acclaimed cinema eatery's highly anticipated first theater coming to Tarrant County. The sixth Alamo Drafthouse location in North Texas will be in the city of North Richland Hills and is expected to open in April 2019.
"A Tarrant County location has been a long time coming," said Alamo Drafthouse DFW Chief Operations Officer Bill DiGaetano. "I have close ties to the City of North Richland Hills and we have been discussing and working on a deal there for almost six years. Being a resident of North Tarrant, I am selfishly very excited to finally have an Alamo Drafthouse five minutes from my house. I am also thrilled to be able to share our concept with friends, neighbors, and residents throughout the area!"
Located at 8380 Davis Blvd., Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills will be an 8 screen full service theater with over 950 luxury recliners and an attached full service bar and restaurant, Vetted Well, with 32 craft beers on tap. This location will also feature an outdoor play area so moms and dads can grab a bite and a beer while letting their kids blow off steam.
"A movie theater is among the most desired additions to the city by our residents, and having an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is even better," said North Richland Hills Mayor Oscar Trevino. "Alamo Drafthouse not only satisfies our demand for movie going, but also introduces unique events and a new neighborhood restaurant to the North Tarrant Parkway corridor. The City Council and I couldn't be happier to welcome Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to the North Richland Hills community."
Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills' 8 theaters will showcase the very best new releases, iconic special events, and the company's unique take on repertory programming. Each theater will be equipped with top-of-the-line digital 4K projection and dynamic surround sound, Sony's state of the art Phosphorus laser projectors, and fully outfitted with luxury recliners that are equipped with footrest ensuring every seat in the house offers a viewing experience of unparalleled comfort. Alamo Drafthouse North Richland Hills will also feature a Premium Large Format auditorium called THE BIG SHOW. This theater will feature one of the largest screens in the Alamo Drafthouse brand with Dolby's immersive sound experience, Atmos.

Chance Olin with Olin Realty Partners, LLC represented Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DFW in this deal as well as the Alamo Drafthouse Las Colinas opening in April 2018.
Founded in 1997, Alamo Drafthouse has been heralded for unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades including "Best Theater Ever" (Time Magazine) and "The Coolest Theater in the World" (Wired). Alamo provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run movies, independent films and special events with an extensive menu made from scratch. Guests order all food and drinks from servers who quietly attend to them throughout the movie from inside the theater.
Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, Alamo Drafthouse shows a curated collection of rare and humorous clips themed to each feature. Additionally, Alamo Drafthouse protects the theatrical experience with a zero tolerance policy for people who disrupt the film with talking or texting. Alamo Drafthouse was featured on global news for a viral "Don't Talk" PSA that used a humorously misguided voicemail from an actual patron who was ejected for texting during the film. The full story on the long tradition of Alamo Drafthouse's no talking/texting policy can be found here.
