Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Opens Star Wars Themed Movie Theater


The Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain has just opened a Star Wars-themed movie theater in the Nebraska city, presumably the country’s first. Among the features: a 10-foot Death Star hanging in the lobby, complete with green superlaser (image above).

There’s also Imperial ship-style light panels…


That’s no concession stand… it’s a space station!


Plus Imperial signage. This is indeed the lobby you’re looking for.


And the Emperor’s throne. You can actually turn on the lobby’s fully operational Death Star using the controls. You want this, don’t you? Goooood.


“The idea behind the lobby is that we wanted to construct and install a lobby theme that would make us unique in our Omaha market as well as the Midwest,” said the Alamo’s Omaha team in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “We also wanted a theme that was built around an iconic film and to completely own that theme to immerse our guests in the experience. That is when Star Wars came into the picture and it just so happened that we timed it out just right with the announcement of the huge plans for a new Star Wars legacy starting this December. It is a permanent installation and will be thee destination to see all of the new Star Wars films.”

The design, construction and installation was done by Dimensional Innovations out of Kansas City. (Reprinted from Entertainment Weekly)

Alamo Drafthouse Kicks Off “Summer of 1983” With Return of The Jedi On The Big Screen


Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating the “Summer of 1983,” a sequel to last year’s extremely popular film series marking the 30th anniversary of the greatest Hollywood blockbusters of the 1980s – and for many people, the most wowing cinema experiences of their childhoods. Last year Alamo honored 1982. And while that was indeed the greatest summer of movies ever, it turns out a slew of celebrated popcorn classics were released in the summer 1983 as well, movies like Trading Places, Risky Business, and National Lampoon’s Vacation.

And of course, the crown jewel of that summer was Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. The Alamo is proud to host the film’s theatrical return for its actual 30th anniversary on Saturday, May 25. The Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane in Austin, TX, will be the site of an all-day, galactic-sized celebration. Alamo is honored to be one of only two places this summer where the original trilogy classic can be seen on the big screen again, the first time since 1997.

What’s more, the Alamo is also going to turn the clock back to a time before the construction of the technological terror we’re so proud of… yes, before the Internet Age, back when the public celebrated their anticipation for a film… in LINE! Reserved seating will not be available for Return of the Jedi and Alamo will be creating an all day party with food & Star Wars-related activities throughout the day, including a costume contest. Tickets are on sale NOW for the May 25th Austin screening of Return of the Jedi.

The “Summer of 1983” programming will be featured in all Alamo Drafthouse markets, including Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, TX; Denver, CO; Kansas City, MO; and Ashburn and Winchester, VA. Tickets for Return of the Jedi in Austin are on sale now. Tickets for all other films will go on sale two weeks before each screening date. Follow @drafthouse on twitter for on-sale announcements.

The following films will be featured in “Summer of 1983”:

Return of the Jedi (Austin-only)
Trading Places
The Killing of Satan
Risky Business
The Deadly Spawn
National Lampoon’s Vacation
Jaws 3-D
