SoLost isn't easily impressed. We've seen a lot of magical things throughout this unique land. But one of the greatest things we've ever come across is nothing less than a movie theater. Yes, you hear us correctly: a movie theater. But certainly not an ordinary one: we're talking about a place that has inspired entire families to uproot their lives and move thousands of miles across the country. Yes, for a movie theater. And no, we're not kidding. In fact we kind of like their logic.

From Master Pancake Theater to Hecklevision to Sing-Alongs and Quote-Alongs; from nighttime "Jaws" screenings from inner tubes on a lake to a car-eating Robosauras breathing fire in their parking lot to Leonard Nimoy shocking fans with a surprise world premiere of the new Star Trek, this is a spot where every day brings a grand new film event. And did we mention the CEO had a boxing match with the star of "Girlfight"? Yeah, the list goes on.

How do they do it? No idea. Why do they do it? Well, the way we see it, nothing short of a boundless passion for film could create something this inspired. Simple as that.

So give a big howdy to the Alamo Drafthouse: a cinema eatery with a diet rich in great moviemaking, mind-blowingly creative interactive programming and gourmet food delivered while you enjoy the show. It may well be the future of moviegoing and, yes, it may also be coming to your town soon. You should be so lucky.

Now click play and see what the fuss is all about .... (and don't talk during the screening or we'll....)
