Waiting For Brooklyn's Alamo Drafthouse....

Sony has canceled 'The Interview' because of terror threats, presumably from North Korea. So Alamo Drafthouse has decided to run ‘Team America’ in its place, reports Geeks of Doom.

Brooklyn will be missing out on this amusing movie, as we don't yet have an Alamo Drafthouse -- the movie theater where patrons have food and drinks delivered to their seats.

The closest one is in Yonkers, which Alamo calls (via its Twitter handle) AlamoNYC, which is just so wrong.

Brooklyn will soon be getting an Alamo Drafthouse, however, at City Point in Downtown Brooklyn at the Fulton Mall.

It's slated to open sometime in 2015. Just when in 2015 is still a question. Alamo has been maintaining radio silence on that for more than a year. (We'll let you know if they get back to us.)

If you've never eaten at one, here's how the food and drinks thing works: In front of the theater seats there's a long, narrow table that runs the length of the row. Patrons check off choices on a menu, then stand it up in the clip at the front of the table.

According to the Alamo website, "That paper then acts like a flag to get your waiter's attention. He'll then crouch down past everyone else and grab your order with the speed and agility of a trained ninja."
