As first reported by The Dallas Morning News, the Austin-based theater chain announced it had purchased and plans to reopen its formerly franchised DFW locations this summer. The locations closed after the franchise operator abruptly declared bankruptcy, citing declining revenue and attendance.

This comes after Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas was acquired by Sony Pictures Entertainment in June, being reorganized under Sony’s new division, Sony Pictures Experiences.

According to Alamo’s website, the five North Texas locations will open in “rapid succession”. It is presently unclear when the Lake Highlands location, which opened in 2018, will reopen. 

The reopening will feature discounts and promotions, and those owed ticket refunds will receive free ticket vouchers. 

Former employees who lost wages will “be made whole for lost wages” and receive priority for interviews.
