Alamo Drafthouse’s restoration and retrofit of the 1920s movie palace in San Francisco’s Mission District features a total of five screens, ranging in size from boutique screens of just 34 to 320 seats in the grand hall, as well as a full-service bar and kitchen, in-theater dining and a strictly enforced (and widely lauded) no-talking/no-texting policy.
Alamo Drafthouse’s New Mission Theater will feature a comprehensive offering of the best new releases ranging from blockbusters to indies and the Alamo’s highly-celebrated signature repertory programming. The largest auditorium at the New Mission will feature Sony’s aforementioned revolutionary projection system in addition to archival 70mm & 35mm projection capabilities. The other four auditoriums feature state-of-the-art Sony 4K digital projection and Dolby digital surround sound.
All seating is assigned and can be reserved at time of ticket purchase online or in-person at the box office. Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy Alamo’s exclusive pre-show entertainment of rare clips, videos and shorts that are custom-curated to complement each feature film or event.
Located at 2550 Mission Street, between 21st & 22nd, the New Mission was built in 1915 and subsequently expanded in the 1920s and 1930s. It showed it’s last movie in May 1993, and diligent work by the San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation resulted in it being declared a landmark in 2004.
Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission is easily accessible on public transportation. It is directly on the 14 and 49 bus lines, two blocks north of the 24th Street BART stop, and a ten-minute walk from the J-Church line. There are several private parking lots adjacent to the theater, as well.
