Though the business model—a movie theater that serves food and drinks to your seat!—has already arrived in Brooklyn thanks to Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema, the brand most closely associated with it is following right behind: the Alamo Drafthouse will open a location in Downtown Brooklyn as part of the City Point development on the old Dekalb Market site, Eater NY reports. The seven-screen theater plans to open in 2015, the year after a planned Upper West Side location, making it the third Alamo in the metropolitan region. (There’s also one slated for Yonkers.)

The chain of theaters, founded in Texas, is as famous—or infamous, depending on how you behave—for its food-and-drink service as it is for its strict no talking/no texting policy. They’ll kick you out, like for real.
