Triple Tap Ventures is pleased to announce that it will re-open Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo to movie-lovers in August and the grand opening of its new East Side location will take place this fall.
Beginning Tuesday, August 25, 2020, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo will re-open its doors with screenings of new and classic films.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo’s Glass Half Full Taproom will also re-open with limited hours.
“We’re looking forward to getting back to what we love to do – bringing guests the best film, food, and drinks all in one seat,” said Neil Billingsley-Michaelsen, CEO and President of Triple Tap Ventures LLC. “In addition, we are pleased to announce that construction of our new East El Paso location is nearing its final stages and doors will open in the fall.”
The all-new state-of-the-art Alamo Drafthouse Cinema East El Paso is slated to open in November 2020. Located at Monteverde, an upcoming 30-acre mixed-use development at Loop 375 and Pellicano Drive, the new Alamo Drafthouse is a 10-screen theater with approximately 1,000 luxury recliners and an attached full-service bar and restaurant with over forty craft beers on tap. Each theater is equipped with state-of-the-art digital 4K projection and dynamic surround sound, and fully outfitted with luxury recliners, ensuring every seat in the house offers a viewing experience of unparalleled comfort.
It will also feature The Big Show, Alamo Drafthouse’s Large Format Theater concept that showcases the very best presentation available today, including Dolby Atmos sound technology and one of the largest screens in the Alamo Drafthouse brand.
GUEST AND EMPLOYEE SAFETY
Guests attending screenings at the re-opening Montecillo and the new Monteverde location will be asked to maintain six feet of physical distancing at all times and wear a mask unless they are eating or drinking. Ticket purchases will automatically have at least two “buffer seats” surrounding each party, offering at least six feet of distance between guests.
There will be a dramatic increase in the frequency and thoroughness of all theater cleans, including the disinfection of each auditorium between screening using professional electrostatic sanitization machines that utilize EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectants. Hand sanitizers are placed throughout the building. In addition, a number of other cleanliness and health check processes have been implemented for our team and non-guest areas.
The theater’s menu at reopening will be reduced from our prior offering, with a focus on a number of our favorite freshly made items served in a way that minimizes exposure to the environment or other individuals.
