AUSTIN -- Movie lovers who make their home at the South Lamar Alamo Drafthouse will have to find a new theater for a while.
Crews have been tearing down buildings in the shopping center where the Alamo Drafthouse is located. They are making way for a renovated theater and Highball.
Three apartment buildings with retail on the first floors will go where the parking lot sits. Parking will be underground.
Most of the current shops in the center have already signed leases elsewhere.
The Alamo Drafthouse will hold special screenings Thursday to give the South Lamar mainstay a proper send off. Click here for the schedule.
