From Alamo Drafthouse Press Release:We haven’t had much news to share with you all about our new theater on Staten Island, but the so-called Forgotten Borough is forgotten no longer. We are excited to announce that construction is wrapping up at our newest New York City outpost at The Boulevard shopping plaza on Hylan Boulevard.

Our last update on our Staten Island theater was – checks notes – 2018 (?!), when we revealed the concept behind our RZA-curated, kung-fu-themed bar The Flying Guillotine (named after the Shaw Bros. classic MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE). Rest assured, though, that our design and construction teams have been hard at work on this action-packed new location.

Like all Alamo Drafthouse cinemas, our Staten Island theater will offer a full food and drink menu with appetizers, entrees, and desserts available, as well as full bar options including innovative cocktails, spirits, award-winning milkshakes, and a huge selection of local draft beers brought right to your seat by our amazing ninja servers. Staten Island will be home to 9 screens ranging in size from 200 seats to 37, with a total of 893 fully-reclining seats for you to enjoy the latest Hollywood blockbusters, indie titles, classics, not-so-classics, foreign films, insane rediscoveries, restorations, rarities, documentaries, cult stuff, music stuff, interactive parties (whew) and lots more. From family-friendly sing-a-longs to B-movie trash, it’s all under one gigantic roof here in Staten Island. And, yes, there will be 35mm!

In addition to a vast menu of beers, wines and cocktails, The Flying Guillotine bar will also feature a video store offering free rentals from an exhaustive collection of titles, including martial arts classics personally curated by RZA. It’ll also have an archive of memorabilia and posters that cover the vast span of kung fu film history.

OK, so your next question is probably going to be, “When do you open?” We don’t have a solid opening date and don’t want to commit to anything just yet, but things are progressing very quickly, so let’s just say it will be sooner rather than later. There still are a few minor things to be finished before we can start showing movies, but below you’ll find a few photos giving you a sneak peek at what all is happening inside the theater. We have a lot of fun stuff planned to celebrate our opening and to stay up to date on an exact opening date and any special events, sign up for Alamo Victory at drafthouse.com/victory.
