Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will open Alamo Drafthouse New Mission in San Francisco California sometime during the fourth quarter of 2013 in the historic New Mission District. With the possible exception of Austin  San Francisco is my favorite city in the world.  My parents met there I was born in Berkeley and my wife was working in the city before I begged her to come help me start my first theatre venture in Bakersfield California said Alamo CEO and founder Tim League.  There is no accident that the first theatre outside of Austin that my wife and I pursued is in San Francisco. The Alamo Drafthouse New Mission venue upon successfully completing the local entitlement and approval process will feature five screens of new release movies independent and repertory films as well as the Alamo's unique signature programming. Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with digital projection as well as excellent screen size to room ratio and quality sound.  In addition the layout of each screening room will eliminate the traditional front row ensuring every seat in the house allows for a great viewing experience.  The theatres at Alamo Drafthouse New Mission will also be equipped for 3D and 35mm projection. The programming of Alamo Drafthouse New Mission will be similar to the Alamo Ritz location in Austin with a mix of classic film programming alternative content and live events foreign films independent films as well as some studio films.  As in Austin Alamo Drafthouse New Mission will entertain partnerships with new and upcoming film festivals.
