Bankruptcy Will Not Close Springfield’s Alamo Drafthouse

Movie lovers around the Ozarks are not going to be losing one of their most beloved destinations.

A report in the Springfield Business Journal says that Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League told them that the Springfield location of the theatre chain will not be closing as part of this week’s bankruptcy filing.

“We look forward to serving our guests again soon in Springfield,” League reportedly told SBJ.

The theatre has been closed since last fall because of a lack of major Hollywood movie releases in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alamo Drafthouse announced this week a filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. They announced they would be closing three underperforming locations, including Kansas City, but had not specifically mentioned if Springfield would be continuing operations.
