Texas Business reports: AUSTIN—Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to unveil its plans for its first location in New York.


The five-screen Manhattan-area theater will be owned and operated by Alamo Drafthouse and located on the Upper West Side, occupying the former Metro Theater at 2626 Broadway.


“My often-stated top priority for the Alamo Drafthouse has been to open a venue in New York,” said Alamo chief executive Tim League in a prepared statement.  “When we discovered the availability of the historic Metro theater, we immediately knew we had found the perfect location for our new Manhattan home.”


The venue will feature five screens of new releases, repertory programming and the Alamo's signature programming.  Like all Alamo Drafthouse theaters, the Alamo Drafthouse at the Metro will provide food and drink service to the viewer’s seat and will uphold its strict no-talking policy. 


The new theater is currently scheduled to open in 2013.


Alamo Drafthouse is now accepting applications for managers, kitchen staff, creative programmers, bartenders and waiters for the upcoming Manhattan theater.  Employment applications can be downloaded at


Alamo Drafthouse is a lifestyle entertainment brand with an acclaimed cinema-eatery, the largest genre film festival in the United States and a collectible art store.
