For years and years — 23, to be exact — the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain has been respected and revered for its superb movie curation. Now, with the world on lockdown and all public theaters closed, they’ve turned their focus toward a brand-spanking-new online streaming service they’ve called Alamo On Demand.
As we’ve come to expect, the service features a wide variety of films — both old and new, domestic and foreign — that aren’t quite representative of mainstream consumption. Instead, these films represent the fringe between movies and art (even the off-beat b-comedies) and cater more toward those who are careful about the types of films they’ll watch. That includes new releases, like Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, and deep cut cult classics, like Time Crimes and The FP. Best of all, they can be streamed from anywhere with an internet connection and are available both as one-time rentals and digital purchases. If you’re the type to call yourself a film buff, this might just be the streaming service you’ve been waiting for.
