Don’t go here
My wife and I were able to get out of the house for a Friday night date. Went to dinner in one loudoun waitress too long to get us our check. Walked over to Alamo as we were walking up the steps in the actual theatre mind you the previews were still playing a manager or someone asked to see my ticket. He then proceeded to tell me he’s sorry and that they don’t allow you in if you’re late. I had a small argument with him since there were multiple people getting up and walking out to use the bathroom and even some people coming back in from doing same. He just kept saying he’s sorry and that’s policy this happens in early 2020
I havn’t been back there since there are plenty of other movie theatres in the area and quite frankly are much nicer and you don’t have the smell of ketchup and cheese right next to you from people eating.
They lost atleast 20 visits since that time for me and friends as well as when I bring the kids and we spend upwards of 50 or more dollars on drinks

Do NOT buy a gift card from these people. I purchased one as a gift and when the recipient tried to use it, it had a zero balance. I have tried repeatedly to resolve the issue with management. The first manager I worked with tried to be helpful, but was unable to resolve the problem and despite his position was unable to credit back the money. What? My case was reassigned to another manger who just ignores my emails. What a racket. Total rip off.

Food prices used to be reasonable here, but they have gone way up. Burgers are $17-$18 and they aren’t even that big! A chicken tender and fries platter is $15 now. Quality is just average, as was the service.

We will eat beforehand from now on.

The theater seats were decent and the sound was pretty good.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is by far one of my favorite movie theaters! I love the unique concept of getting served at your seat with a gourmet menu. I also love how the previews relate to the movie you will be watching. Alamo is a fantastic movie theater. It is definitely one of the best in town!

Me and my daughter went there two months ago. we each ordered a pizza, she had a diet coke and I had a glass of wine. When the girl brought my credit card charge, I noticed it was for $36. I added a tip and I believe the final amount was $42. We had paid for the tickets online prior to going. The girl never brought back a copy of my receipt. When the credit card statement came a few weeks later, there was a charge of $107.00 instead of the $42. I called the theater manager and they said he would return my call. He didn't. Then I called the home office in Texas. Same story, they would return my call. They didn't. Then, I went online and found I was not the only one dealing with this. Dozens and dozens had similar complaints. One guy said they ripped him off with a credit card overcharge, but he liked the theater and their concept of serving meals so much, he decided to pay cash. He ordered the food, and when he paid for the meal with 2 $20 bills, the girl returned with change for $30. She claimed he had given her a $20 and a $10. Long story short, he again was ripped off for $10. If you go there, all I can say is beware!

With some many new movie theaters popping up, I was very pleased to hear that the Alamo was coming to my town. With full menu, and some great healthy choices and those "not" so healthy, but soooo yummy choices, you get to sit back, not have to deal with long lines at the concession stand, Prices are pretty good and staff was pretty friendly. I will be going back.

This is the best place to see a movie. Nothing beats sit down service, drinks and the best bottomless popcorn around. Before they opened my husband never went to the movies with me.

I was excited to visit the new Alamo Cinema Drafthouse in Ashburn but found my experience disappointing. The food was ok but difficult to eat in the dark. I found the counter located in front of my seat distracting during the movie - it was directly in my line of vision.

I took my three boys to this entertaining dinner theater. It was fun to eat dinner and see a movie at the same time. The kids liked it and the staff were very attentive. Not to mention the food was good too. A little pricy, but it’s what you would pay to go out to a nice reasturant.
