Cabela's, in La Vista, will soon have a new neighbor. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema plans to build its first ever movie theater in Nebraska.
The eight-screen theater, bar, and restaurant will be owned by Entertainment Management, operated by Alamo Drafthouse and located at the Southport West development across the street from the existing Cabelas.
Alamo Drafthouse provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run movies, independent films and special events with an extensive menu made from scratch. Customers order food and drinks from servers who quietly attend to them throughout the movie.
Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, the Alamo shows a curated collection of rare and humorous clips.
“We're proud of the fact that we don't show advertising,” Tim League said. “People don't want to pay for a film and then be bombarded with 20 minutes or more of shampoo commercials and military recruiting ads. Even if you don’t like the movie, our goal is to make the preshow entertainment so good you are still glad you came.”
