Austin has long been a serious hotbed for film & TV production, and, with many talented artists living here, there is great competition for this industry's attention. Thus, in addition to a rotating lineup of shows, it is nice to see that The Institution Theater dedicates itself to providing intimate, affordable acting & sketch writing classes. As if all of that were not enough, the instructors of this company offer "Corporate Training" packages. The idea of this package is to help young business people effectively and efficiently communicate within the workplace through improv.
Technically, there are six Alamo Drafthouse locations in Austin. The popular belief is that, if you're in Austin and you want to see a movie, this is the place to be; it's a theater where you can order drinks and food from a strong menu to be served to you during the film (the aisles are wide enough to accommodate dining tables). Arrive one hour prior to showtime to find a good seat and to start ordering if you're going to dine heartily here - last call is 45 to 30 minutes before the movie ends.
