Alamo Drafthouse Cinema announced Monday plans to open its fourth San Antonio location – this time at La Cantera – by late 2020.

The new drafthouse will anchor La Cantera Crossing, a separate partnership  development between USAA Real Estate and Barshop & Oles Company, that will feature approximately 38,000 square feet of retail and shopping space.

“Alamo Drafthouse La Cantera will be the first new Alamo Drafthouse in San Antonio in close to ten years,” stated Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League. “Because of that – and because we owe San Antonio for half of our name – we’re going to make this location really special.”

The new 38,370-square-foot theater will open with 11 eleven screens — all offering top-of-the-line digital 4K resolution and surround sound — as well as an estimated 901 luxury recliners and a full-service bar with 48 local beers on tap.

The Current has reached out to representatives with the Alamo Drafthouse for full menu details.
