Alamo Drafthouse New Mission reopens in San Francisco on September 10, 2021.

Movies are miracles, and Alamo Drafthouse New Mission is excited to welcome back audiences in San Francisco to collectively share in those miracles. Tickets are on sale now for shows beginning today.

Alamo Drafthouse New Mission reopens with the massively successful Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, buzzy horror film Candyman, the new film from director Paul Schrader, The Card Counter, and more. In addition to new releases, the theater is excited to share San Francisco classics Vertigo and So I Married An Axe Murderer.

Alamo Drafthouse New Mission is following the public health recommendations from the CDC and adhering to all local mask mandates. Guests must have proof of vaccination before attending a show. Read about their additional safety procedures.

Alamo Drafthouse is located at 2550 Mission Street in the New Mission Theater, which was originally built in 1907 (or 1916 depending on when you start counting) and then refurbished and reopened in 2015 by Alamo Drafthouse after decades of neglect. The theater has five auditoriums that seats 536 guests.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was founded in 1997 as a single-screen mom and pop repertory theater in Austin, TX. Twenty-four years later, with 38 locations and counting, Alamo Drafthouse has been called “the best theater in America” by Entertainment Weekly and “the best theater in the world” by Wired. Alamo Drafthouse has built a reputation as a movie lover’s oasis not only by combining food and drink service with the movie-going experience, but also introducing unique programming and high profile, star-studded special events. Alamo Drafthouse created Fantastic Fest, a world-renowned film festival dubbed “The Geek Telluride” by Variety. Fantastic Fest showcases eight days of genre cinema from independents, international filmmakers, and major Hollywood studios. Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art gallery, Mondo, offers breathtaking, original products featuring designs from world-famous artists based on licenses for popular TV and movie properties including Star Wars, Star Trek & Universal Monsters. Alamo Drafthouse continues to expand its brand in new and exciting ways, including the American Genre Film Archive, a non-profit film archive dedicated to preserving, restoring and sharing film, and Alamo On Demand, a new VOD platform boasting a growing and carefully curated library of entertainment for rental or purchase.
