Best Movie Theaters for Food Lovers

Slide 5 of 13

Alamo Drafthouse, Austin

Husband-and-wife Tim and Karrie League opened the first single-screen Alamo Drafthouse in a former 7,000-square-foot downtown Austin parking garage. In addition to good food, they’re serious about keeping in-movie distractions to a minimum. To order favorites like the made-from-scratch Porky’s Pepperoni pizza and the Pulp Fiction-inspired Royale With Cheese Burger, guests write selections on slips of paper to be picked up before and during the movie. A hilarious no-talking PSA airs before films, using sound bites from ejected guests’ angry voicemails. The quirky theater also hosts prix fixe “Feasts,” the most popular being a nearly 12-hour-long marathon centered around the Lord of the Rings trilogy, during which patrons are served every meal featured on screen.
