Alamo Attempts Novel Way To Raise Moving Cash

As Alamo Drafthouse Downtown prepares to face its last week at the Colorado location before they close down for the summer in anticipation of the move to the Ritz, they’ve made the news for another reason: the South Lamar location had computer problems this week and has overcharged customers, some multiple times.

That’s one way to raise money for the move. ;)

On another note, former Metblogger, Marc Savlov has an Alamo Downtown remembrance in this week’s Chronicle and Jette Kernion is running an Alamo Downtown blog-a-thon on Monday. Be sure to get your posts to her.

    It turns out that the Credit Card processing company actually were the ones that had the error. The Alamo is working hard to make sure that their processing company issues refunds as soon as possible.

    I have no doubt that they’ll make it right. I was just having a little fun at their expense (hence the winking emoticon).
