Austin-based movie theater and more Alamo Drafthouse has just announced plans for a third DFW location to be located in Las Colinas, at the upcoming $165M Music Factory entertainment complex. The complex will also feature an 8,000 seat amphitheater, a bowling alley and multiple outdoor stages, plus retail, restaurant and office space.

The first Alamo Drafthouse in DFW opened in Richardson last summer, and plans were recently announced for a second outpost in The Cedars, slated to open mid-2015. The Las Colinas location will feature a second-floor lounge with food, drinks and a patio. Groundbreaking will take place at a free outdoor event this Saturday night that will feature a screening of the original 35mm version of Raiders of the Lost Ark, plus food trucks, local beer, and appropriately on-theme whip deonstrations. The film begins at sunset and the event is BYOC (bring your own chair).
