Alamo Drafthouse opening photos

The day we've all been waiting for finally came yesterday with not only a giant pair of scissors, but a huge sword as well. Tim League, creator of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, was on hand to cut the ceremonial ribbon, as well as send our theater off on a good luck note by sabering the top of a Champagne bottle off with a trusty sabre, a tradition in which victorious cavalries would saber the top of a bottle after battle, because as Napoleon would say "In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it". Three bottles were sabered during the ceremony and all three were executed without exploding, so we're already off to a great start! Following the ceremony, Tim League led local members of the press on a tour of our historic building before sitting down to watch a special screening of Jurassic Park.
