Alamo Drafthouse Drive-In & Indoor Theater


The Austin-based theater chain, Alamo Drafthouse, provided several details about its plans for the new cinema and drive-in theater on the former 112 Drive-In property, located at at 3552 Hwy 112 in Fayetteville.

The new 38,000-square-foot facility will be part of a new 19.5-acre mixed-use development called The Aronson, which will feature a mix of commercial and residential units anchored by what will be the first Alamo Drafthouse in Arkansas and the company’s first permanent drive-in.

“Our mission at Alamo Drafthouse is to preserve, celebrate, and innovate the cinema experience,” said Shelli Taylor, CEO of Alamo Drafthouse. “Drive-in theaters deeply influenced the Alamo Drafthouse preshow, programming, and design from the very beginning, but we have never managed to incorporate a permanent drive-in into any of our theaters. We are beyond excited to launch the first Alamo drive-in screen in Fayetteville!”

The new theater is set to open in 2024 and will include both Hollywood blockbusters and first-run releases next to independent and art house titles, according to a website update.

Similar to other Drafthouse locations, menus will be available at each seat where patrons will use paper and pen to order food and drinks after pressing a call button to contact a server. Menus will include appetizers, entrees and desserts, plus full bar options including cocktails, spirits, milkshakes and draft beers. A kids menu with a la carte options is also available.

The Fayetteville location will include a standalone cocktail bar and outdoor beer garden with a view of the drive-in screen.

The indoor cinema will include a total of 800 seats across eight 4k digital theaters, all equipped with 7.1 Dolby surround sound. One of the theaters will include Dolby Atmos spatial sound technology.
