"I am extremely excited about the major development in downtown Brooklyn and proud to be a part of it," said Alamo Drafthouse Founder and CEO Tim League.  "Although more than two years on the horizon, I can tell you that the City Point Brooklyn Alamo will be our best theater yet."

The venue will feature seven screens of new releases, repertory programming and the Alamo's unique signature programming in both 35mm and digital formats.  Like all Alamo Drafthouse theaters, Alamo Drafthouse City Point will provide food and drink service to your seat and will uphold its famously strict no-talking policy.  The new theater is currently scheduled to open in 2015.

Kenneth Bernstein, President and CEO of Acadia Realty Trust said "We welcome Alamo Drafthouse to the growing tenant roster at City Point which also includes fashion icons A|X Armani Exchange and Century 21 department store.  Alamo Drafthouse is a fantastic entertainment anchor for the downtown Brooklyn community."

City Point is a 1.8 million square foot mixed-use development in downtown Brooklyn, at the crossroads of historic brownstone neighborhoods, civic landmarks, universities and one of New York City's busiest retail and office districts.  The project will strengthen and anchor Fulton Street and downtown Brooklyn, the city's third busiest central business district, by adding a critical mass of new retail, restaurants and entertainment options.  In addition, the project includes critically-needed affordable and market rate housing, and will create thousands of new construction and permanent jobs for the local community.
