LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Alamo Drafthouse Theaters has announced they will not be reopening their Texas locations when Governor Greg Abbott’s stay-at-home order expires on April 30.
The announcement came on the Austin-based theater chain’s social media Monday, following Governor Abbott’s news conference revealing he would let his stay-at-home order expire, allowing certain businesses such as theaters to reopen with limited occupancy.

Opening safely is a very complex project that involves countless new procedures and equipment, all of which require extensive training. This is something we cannot and will not do casually or quickly.
Alamo Drafthouse has 41 locations across the country, with 21 in Texas.
