The popular theater chain and bastion of free speech announced today it plans to open another North Texas location in the cultural mecca of Little Elm.

Alamo Drafthouse plans to have the new location and up and running in the Denton County town of about 30,000 residents by early 2016, according to a press release. The theater will have eight auditoriums, a large patio and lounge, and countless screenings of cult movies accompanied by cutely renamed menu items. It’s set to go up at the Main Marketplace development at the corner of Main Street and FM 423. The location is (relatively) close to Denton’s two colleges, and Little Elm will also be hosting another Austin-based chain with a fanatic following when the newest Hula Hut opens.

It will be the fourth Drafthouse to take up residence in North Texas. A Richardson location opened last year, with two more in the works, one in Las Colinas and one near downtown Dallas.
