Mornings With Gina Birch

This isn’t your grandma’s movie house and it serves much more than buttered popcorn. I just got a sneak peek at the new Alamo Drafthouse Cinema In Naples and it’s impressive. In addition, here is a quick video from the preview.

It’s the  movie chain’s first location in Florida and at over 30,000 square feet it is the largest one.  Opening date is Monday, April 29th. However, I got to join a group of media folks for a look inside and a movie screening.

About Alamo Drafthouse Cinema In Naples

Alamo Drafthouse has 40 locations around the U.S.  Naples makes 41. Each one has a different theme but all are commited to film, food and fun.

The theater in Collier County has 11 screening rooms. Not only do they show all of the new movies but also many of the classics. They also have theme days, weeks and months with curated movies and coordinated events.

It’s a cinema for movie lovers developed by movies lovers and they have thought about nearly every detail.

Comfort At Alamo Drafthouse Cinema In Naples

One of the things I think most movie goers can appreciate is the theater’s “No Talking/No Texting” policy. Violate it once and you will be warned. Violate it again and you will be asked to leave. Thank  you.

The sound is impeccble. The seats are luxurious recliners and there 650 of them. They are specially fitted to safely hold your food and drinks. No more juggling in those small seats.

The ordering system is fast and efficient and continuous throughout the movie. No longer do you have to attempt to time a trip to the lobby for more popcorn. By the way, it is bottomless. So are the soda’s. The cinema is about the entire experience, not just the movie.

There is a lobby bar and they deliver to your seat. Enjoy craft cocktails, a good selection of bourbons and whiskeys, draft beer and premium wines.

Then there is the food. Sure you can get the traditional buttered popcorn. Or you can get Truffle Herb Parmesan or sweet and salty Churro Popcorn. The menu features mostly from scratch items like pizzas, burgers, salads and more.

More At Alamo Drafthouse Cinema In Naples

There is more to do than watch movies. Enjoy nine holes of movie-themed miniature golf in the lobby and terrace. Each hole has a movie theme. However, the inspiration comes from the movie “Happy Gilmore” with Adam Sandler.

You are encouraged to put with a hockey stick on the last hole. If you know, you know.

Putt as early as 30 minutes before the first movie screening of the day. You can stay until curtain goes up on the last movie of the day.

Alamo Drafthouse takes over the space formerly held by Silverspot at Mercato in North Naples. They have lots of grand opening specials and deals on monthly passes so be sure to check it out. Welcome to the neighborhood.
