Despite Alamo Drafthouse Cinema filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the incoming League City location is unaffected.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema filed for bankruptcy March 3 and announced the closure of two Texas theaters: Alamo Drafthouse Marketplace in New Braunfels and The Ritz in downtown Austin. Other locations are unaffected as they are franchises.


Alamo Drafthouse is still set to open in League City by the end of the year at Victory Lakes Town Center, at the northeast corner of I-45 and FM 646. www.drafthouse.com/houston
