Movie buffs in San Antonio have reason to celebrate.

San Antonio-based theater operator Santikos Entertainment has taken over the lease at the former Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes location, MySA reports.



The dinner-and-a-movie theater was officially shuttered by the Austin-based chain in April of this year after an extended closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The deal marks the second Drafthouse that Santikos has taken over, according to MySA's report. Santikos opened a New Braunfels location, formerly an Alamo Drafthouse Marketplace, on August 20.
