Alamo Drafthouse Cinema opens in Downtown Westminster

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema opens in Downtown Westminster

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema opened its doors in Downtown Westminster in late June, adding another building block to the downtown growth plan. Located at 8905 Westminster Boulevard, the new theater boasts nine theaters, including their signature “The Big Show” – a massive 245-seat theater, with fully-reclining seats and unobstructed views of its gigantic screen. The Big Show also uses Dolby Atmos technology to provide a truly immersive, three-dimensional audio experience.

 “The City of Westminster is a perfect fit for our third location in the Denver area,” said Tim Kennedy Alamo Drafthouse Cinema representative. “We are overwhelmed with the amount of support and enthusiasm from the community. This is the largest and most luxurious Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in the Denver area.”

Construction, which broke ground approximately a year ago, was handled by Bailey Construction with architectural design by Hodges Architect. The distinct art deco style is an homage to the 1920s and 30s, and is evident throughout the interior of the theater with original, large format film posters from that era.

The full-service bar “Pandora’s Box” also pays tribute to the women of cinema in the 1920s and 30s and features original lobby cards of female screen stars of that period. The bar offers 32 beers on tap and signature cocktails created around specific movie themes.

Of course Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is known for its food service during its films, streamlining the concept of “dinner and a movie” to “dinner AT the movie.” The menu features Tex Mex favorites, along with a full kids menu and vegan menu. You can order your meal from the comfort of your seat and have it brought to you by servers who have mastered the art of non-interruption, ensuring you catch every moment of the movie.

“We want people to view Downtown Westminster as a community gathering hub,” said Sarah Nurmela, Downtown Real Estate and Development Manager. “Alamo will be hosting a free outdoor movie on Thursday nights through the summer. This is a great opportunity to bring the family and start to experience what Downtown has to offer.”

The Alamo Drafthouse Westminster box office opens 45 minutes before all scheduled show times, but also offers online reserved seating in all auditoriums so you can avoid lines at the theater and choose your favorite seat.
