Though the famous Texas chain was started in the late '90s, it wasn't until the early aughts that the Alamo Drafthouse became an Austin institution. Famous for serving brew and food during screenings (as well as going to great lengths to keep the clientele from dicking around with phones), the Drafthouse set the standard for a new movie experience: you could drink, eat, and count on the fact that if anyone took a call or talked loudly, the staff would 86 them. The chain has expanded to other states, and it was just announced that a New York location is coming soon.
