Take a Video Tour of the Alamo Drafthouse to Say Goodbye to the Iconic South Lamar Location

Austin movie fans have already said farewell to one iconic Alamo Drafthouse. The Colorado Street location in the heart of downtown was a rickety kind of temple to cinema passion. Scrappy and genuine, the warehouse-district screening beacon closed in 2007, hiked a few blocks down to the Ritz and re-opened as the chain was expanding.

Now, the South Lamar — which has become the cornerstone through events like Fantastic Fest — is being razed and will re-emerge from the Earth anew in the fall. Fighting back the tears, Brian Salisbury shot and Luke Mullen edited a video tribute to the theater that made them move across the country to Central Texas. For those who know it best, it’s a fitting celebration, and for those that don’t, its farewell message also acts as a nice backstage introduction.
