Eating Vegan at Alamo Drafthouse
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is a popular chain of dine-in movie theaters that started out here in Austin, and is rapidly expanding throughout the country, with locations everywhere from Yonkers to Kalamazoo. While many movie theaters, including the Alamo Drafthouse, serve popcorn that is accidentally vegan, food is a huge part of the Alamo experience, and the chain offers a lot more than the handful of snacks that are available at a typical movie theater. Luckily, many items on the menu are easily veganizable with a few substitutions.
