Coming Soon

Originally expected to open in late 2020, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is now expected to begin construction at Victory Lakes Town Center, at the northeast corner of I-45 and FM 646, in late early 2021. Due to COVID-19, the project was delayed about year and expected to open in late 2021. The theater will feature 10 screens, including a 60-foot “Big Show” large screen, and offer in-seat food and beverage service. The League City location will offer family-friendly experiences including themed parties and an Alamo Kids Camp series as well as speciality programming like Champagne Cinema and interactive movie parties.


Mediterraneo Market & Cafe is relocating from 18033 Upper Bay Road, Nassau Bay, to 1400 E. NASA Parkway, Ste. D, Houston, a few blocks away by the end of the year. The restaurant’s last day in its existing location is Christmas Eve. Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital in Nassau Bay is expanding, forcing some businesses nearby, including Mediterraneo, to close. 281-333-3180.
