The 33,000-square-foot Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will be the first in the Charlottesville market area and is expected to open in early summer 2017. In addition to in-theater dining, drinks and upgraded seating with recliner availability, the Charlottesville location will have one of the first Alamo Drafthouse Cinema premium large-format screens in the country, which will include the latest Sony Digital Cinema 4K projection and upgraded digital sound for a truly immersive film experience.

The theaters are known for their unique programming events and high exhibition standards, earning accolades such as, Best Theater Ever by Time magazine and “the coolest theater in the world” by Wired. The theater is the brainchild of Tim and Karrie League who dreamed of opening a neighborhood theater that would provide the community with a great place to come together for entertainment as well as a second home to all movie fans.

"We have been interested in opening a Charlottesville location for years now and couldn't be more excited to have landed at 5th Street Station with a great developer and phenomenal co-tenancy,” said Anthony Coco and Joseph Edwards, co-owners of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Charlottesville. “Being Virginia residents and having the pleasure of visiting Charlottesville many times over the last few years, we are positive Alamo and Charlottesville are a fantastic fit. We feel confident the city will embrace our chef-driven, from-scratch food and over 30 craft beer options, served to your seat throughout the film. These offerings along with our amazing special events and the quality of our sound and presentation create the coolest cinema experience available.”
