The Alamo Drafthouse in Downtown Dallas Opens Feb. 12

The "grand opening" is March 9.

Downtown Dallas will finally have a movie theater to call its own on Feb. 12.

According to a contest on Alamo Drafthouse’s website, the popular Austin-based theater chain will throw open the doors at 1005 South Lamar St. for a soft open in February before its March 9 grand opening. (We’ve reached out to Alamo Drafthouse to confirm those dates). Yep, those dates are right.

Alamo’s been teasing a February open for at least a couple months, but this is the first time we’ve seen a specific date. The two-story multiplex will be at the corner of Cadiz and Lamar, near Gilley’s. It will be the second Alamo Drafthouse in North Texas. A Richardson branch opened in 2013, and two more are in the works, one in Las Colinas and one in Little Elm.

If you want to have a crack at winning free movies for a year before the Feb. 12 opening, you can take this quiz to be entered into a contest.

We’re going to a “State of Alamo DFW” media roundtable over the weekend and will have more details about the new theater come Monday.
