The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema chain, which is based in Austin, has announced plans for its first theatre in New England. The Alamo Drafthouse Boston Seaport has 10 screens and about 767 seats. It will show a mix of first-run movies and other types of shows.
Alamo Drafthouse Boston Seaport will also have a 35mm changeover projection, so both old and new movies can be seen on celluloid. This is part of the company’s commitment to keeping 35mm alive.
