On Saturday, April 21, 2018 guests were invited to “GET WEIRD” and join Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh for a night of fun and games with a side of 80’s Flair at their EXCLUSIVE VIP OPENING EXTRAVAGANZA. I love a theme party so when I read the instructions on the invite to: “..dust off your leg warmers and that neon outfit you’ve been dying to wear again”, I was so there! My style paid homage to different 80’s looks. I wore a huge bow, Run DMC tee, denim vest, tutu, pearl chain belt, animal print leggings, fishnet gloves & stockings and a big smile because I was happy to have a Mom’s night out and ready to party!
I first learned about Alamo Drafthouse in March when I attended ‘a Night With Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh’ event at VAE. This movie theatre offers “the best film, food and drink all in one seat”. You can also sit outside on the patio, enjoy a drink, play a board game and order appetizers from the Video Vortex Bar, which is also video store the offering FREE rentals!
I am definitely going back to get the full experience but this event was all about celebrating the Grand Opening! 80s attire was encouraged but by no means required. They had prizes for the best costumes of the night and guests had a chance to win more awesome prizes by participating in a series of scavenger hunt challenges. I was one of the winners of this board game after doing all the challenges!
I am glad I brought my competitive side along with my appetite because we got to feast on their scratch-made delicious food and enjoyed a full open bar featuring a wide array of local beverages.
I had so much fun as a party of one until I ran into more NC blogger friends sporting their 80s style and ready to celebrate the Grand Opening of by Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh!

Sounds like a great place for food, fun, and friends!
We had a great time. I am looking forward to seeing movies there while dining as well.
This looks like it was so much fun! I keep seeing Alamo Drafthouse pop up on all of my social media feeds as a new place to try in the area, so I’m glad to have gotten a little peek into the inside!
The cinema is retro yet innovative at the same time. I look forward to going back!
Love your outfit! So fun! I’ve never been to Alamo before!
Thank you. It was mu first time too but they have other locations and people seem to love it. I can not wait to go back!
