More Alamo Drafthouse news: Los Angeles location coming in 2015


Editor’s note: This article was originally published August 13, 2014

If you’re riding the news blitz about Alamo Drafthouse’s South Lamar location re-opening this week, here’s your cherry on top. The Austin-based movie theater chain is opening its first Los Angeles location next year.

According to a news release, the Drafthouse will set up shop at The Bloc, a 1.8 million square-foot mixed use development in the city’s downtown. Quoth CEO and founder Tim League:

“We’ve been eyeing Los Angeles for many years now. … With The Bloc, we finally found the perfect location and partner to bring our brand of cinema to the birthplace of the industry.”

The Los Angeles theater will have nine screens, seat about 800 moviegoers and be located next to a Macy’s, so that’s a little different from the Alamo you’re used to. The release also says the menu will feature “locally inspired and sourced food and drink,” and the Drafthouse’s adjacent bar will tout a variety of California craft beers.

Take these three from Chablis, Santorini and the Ribeira Sacra region of Spain. Each would make a fresh companion to a light dinner, like this grilled chicken salad in a wrap. ——— ...

Hospitals around the country are scrambling to stockpile vials of a critical drug — even postponing operations or putting off chemotherapy treatments — because the country’s only two suppliers have run out. The medicine? Sodium bicarbonate solution. Yes, baking soda. Sodium bicarbonate is the simplest of drugs — its base ingredient...

For vegetables that sing, cook them simply - and then slather in sauce

Apologies to the Beatles, but in the kitchen, all you need is sauce. Vinaigrettes for your salads, creamy purees for your grain bowls, salsas for dipping, glazes for coating. I mean, if you think about it, what is soup, if not a big bowl of sauce? With perhaps some chunks of vegetables and/or proteins swimming in it. Perhaps that last example goes...
