Remember when we looked at Austin with a glimmer of envy? I'm writing this down to remind the children. The ones who will remember seeing The Lego Movie, chomping down on good pizza, while their parents guzzled adult milkshakes. The ones who won't remember movie theaters reeking of hot dogs and fake butter. The ones who will never experience the total annoyance of an asshole talking on their phone during a movie without recompense. The ones who will never remember a time when Dallas, or even North Texas, didn't have an Alamo Drafthouse.
This is also my absurdly long-winded way of telling you that today the continent-conquering movie theater announced plans to open a theater in Little Elm, that far north suburb of Dallas.
