IN THE NEWS

Alamo Drafthouse had a development agreement with League City prior to the onset of the pandemic in early 2020. The location is currently still in the ground, 17 acres of land located adjacent to The Spot’s future location at 2502 Gulf Freeway S. Livingston said Alamo Drafthouse still plans to begin construction on the new location, possibly prioritizing construction of its restaurant and family entertainment facilities before beginning construction of a movie theater. www.drafthouse.com
