Hearne: Alamo Drafthouse Plans ‘Soft Opening’ for Mainstreet @ 7 PM Wednesday

Shhhhhhhhh…keep this under your hat, but here’s some news you can maybe use…

The Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet is planning a "soft opening" tomorrow at 7 p.m. That according to the Alamo staffers from Austin I chatted with outside the downtown theater last night.

Doors open at 6 p.m., so if you want to be among the first to remember the Alamo here in KC, be there or be square.

The reopening comes one week to the day after AMC‘s final curtain call at its Kansas City, Missouri state-of-the-art, flagship movieplex.

What to expect?

Well, for starters only three movies will be screened, according to the staffers; The Avengers, Prometheus and Snow White. Until at least until the new movies hit this Friday, which include "Ted" with Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis and "Magic Mike" with Channing Tatum and  Matthew McConaughey‘s birthday suit.

Oh and one more thing…

The Alamo will debut its food and drink menu – or some parts thereof – as well. So while the Mainstreet awaits it "daunting" remodeling in September, moviegoers will be allowed to order food and beverages and carry them to their seats in the large downstairs theaters, a staffer says.

Uh, try not to spill.

Spoiler alert: Don’t forget to shut your pie holes and not text or you may find yourself among the first to get kicked out with no refund owing to the Alamo’s famously strict policies.

Consider yourselves warned…

    Have you heard?
    Alamo Drafthouse also has a policy that states “…Children under 6 are typically not admitted and all patrons under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.”

    How dare they!

    It’s really f@cking simple — go here and read their policies:

    …If you don’t like them, then don’t go.

    “Houston, we have a problem.”
