Alamo Drafthouse is a great movie theater that is only getting better. They are expanding rapidly. They show a variety of different movies, and have a great food menu. They also have a very nice beer menu. I really enjoy going to the movies there. This is probably due to the fact that I don't go to the movies very often. It's a great experience. They also have a rewards program. You get a free movie ticket for every 10 points you earn. I haven't used this program much, but it's a nice feature. If you go to the movies a lot, you could probably rack up some free tickets. For those of us that don't go to the movies very often, it's nice to have this program as an option.

Features

With this app, you can stay informed about the latest movies, events, and news at your local Alamo Drafthouse. You can also buy movie tickets, reserve seats, and track your saved seats.

If you are an Alamo Drafthouse member, you can access member-only content. You can also use this app to earn rewards and/or free stuff by doing things like checking in to the theater, buying tickets online, or referring friends.

Design

The app is designed by Alamo Drafthouse, the Austin-based cinema chain and restaurant company, and is available on both Apple and Android devices. It is the third design product by Alamo Drafthouse and the first one I worked on. The design is a good example of a relatively small product that has a big impact on the user's experience. It is also a good example of the power of a good designer. The app has won several design awards and has been approved by both Apple and Google, which is not an easy task.

Usability

The app is easy to use. The app's home screen has a few options, such as "Movies", "Artists", "Events", and "My Stuff". "Movies" allows the user to see all the movies that are currently playing. "Artists" allows the user to see all the films that a specific director has made. "Events" allows users to search for events. "My Stuff" allows users to view information about their tickets, such as where they are, what time the film is, etc.

The user can also search for movies, directors, and events by tapping on the search icon in the upper-right corner of the screen. If the user taps on a movie in the search results, they can see the movie's showtimes, its rating, the running time, etc.

Conclusion

This app is a great example of a good app. It is easy to use, it's well-designed, and it has a big impact on the user's experience. It is also a great example of the power of a good designer and the value of a good design.

Pros:
  • Ability to add your name to a waitlist without having to pick a seat
  • Ability to search for movie showtimes
  • Ability to see which movies are playing at all of the Alamo locations
  • Ability to see details about the movie you are seeing such as ratings and reviews.
Cons:
  • You can't see the movie trailers
  • The waitlist is not super useful.
