Inside Look: Alamo Drafhouse Opens in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A new kind of movie experience opened Monday in Springfield.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema started showing movies tonight and KOLR10 got a look inside this afternoon.

This is the largest Alamo Drafthouse in the U.S.

It has 14 screens, a bar and restaurant on site.

Once seated, you'll have a table in front of you and the servers walk on a lower platform so as not to block the screen.

If you're the type of movie-goer who thinks texting or talking is fine - not here. 
   
"We are super focused on a high quality enjoyable movie experience, with no interruptions and none of the things you often get in other theaters that as a movie lover myself drive me crazy," Marc Evans, Alamo Drafthouse owner, said.

Alamo Drafthouse is in the same building that once housed Campbell Sixteen. Its first movie started at 5 p.m. Monday.
