I didn't get tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse screenings; what should I do?

The Alamo Drafthouse screenings sell out quickly! Tickets will go on sale when the schedule is announced. If you are unable to get tickets, we invite you to attend the Pre-Drafthouse Networking Events before the screenings.

Why do you screen in a hotel?

For us, this fits the vibe of our festival. Our fest is about networking and team building. When we've played festivals with a central location, where people are hanging out, you get to know people better, you see more movies and you end up building better allies. Our fest is all about being low maintenance so people can relax and enjoy themselves.

Getting Around Austin

What time should I leave the DoubleTree Hotel to get to the Alamo Drafthouse on time?

The Alamo Drafthouse is an experience unto itself. Seating will begin at 6:30pm and once in the theater you can order food and drinks to be delivered to your seat.

We will be in the 400 Rabbits bar, connected to the Alamo Drafthouse as early as 5:30pm on both Wednesday and Thursday nights, and encourage all filmmakers and attendees to join us there for our networking event.

This is the height of rush hour traffic in Austin so we suggest leaving the DoubleTree Hotel by 4:45pm to ensure you arrive in time for the networking and Alamo Drathouse screenings.
