Alamo Drafthouse Reopens the New Mission Theatre Tomorrow – Pay $5 for Home Alone – And Next Week, Star Wars 7 for $9.25

You young kids don’t know what inflation is, but I do. And if someone had told me back when I was laboring at some flea-bitten Landmark Theatres, where precious It’s It’s cost $2 and frozen Toblerone bars were $3 and tickets were $6, I think, that you’d be able to see a first-run film for just $9.25 in the heart of Frisco on business-class seating in the Year of our Lord 2015, well I wouldn’t have believed it.

It’s here, opening early, on 12-12-15

Take a look around.

See you there!
