texans to help new yorkers take back the island

One of the worst parts about going out in New York is going to the movies. Somehow, movies have turned into family events. True, if I had children (ha, ha, ha),  I would want to spend most of my time in the dark staring at the screen pretending they don’t exisit. But, it’s not so simple. Lil’ Peter, Paul, and Mary don’t just sit down and watch the pretty moving pictures. No, no, no. They cry, scream, pitch fits, and ask questions about every single plot point. You know Hollywood instituted rating systems for a reason, little brats can’t understand the twists and turns of Memento, just leave them at home.

At last, the movies in New York will be saved. According to ny mag, some Texan company is bringing their movie chain here. Aside from cafe tables and bistro fare (gag me), there is a ban on children. They prohibit all kids under six. Thank Jebus or Texas!

  1. OMG, the Alamo Drafthouse ROCKS!!!!! Seriously, in the 8 years I’ve lived in Austin, I’ve been to see movies at non-Alamo theaters a grand total of 3 times. In general, if a movie isn’t playing at an Alamo location, I wait for the DVD.
    There are never any kids there, only adults who honestly enjoy movies. Instead of commercials before the movies, they run either related TV shows or obscure video clips that are geniunely entertaining. Also, the food is unbelievably delicious.
    I can’t tell you how much I fucking love the Alamo Drafthouse, and I’m so excited that their franchises are going national.

  2. I will point out that as far as R or Unrated movies go, The ImaginAsian theater in midtown has gone a step further and banned all children under TWELVE.

    Which is AWESOME.
