Fans of dinner-and-a-movie chain Alamo Drafthouse rejoice. There will soon be 400 more seats at the theater’s Downtown Brooklyn location.

Alamo Drafthouse have inked a lease to add 25,000 square feet to their current space at Acadia Realty’s City Point at 445 Albee Square West, according to Commercial Observer.

The movie theater currently occupies 38,000 square feet and has seven screens at City Point. The new expansion will double the amount of screens. The chain is also set to open a new 10-screen multiplex at 28 Liberty in the Financial District.

Other businesses at Acadia and Washington Square Partners-developed City Point, which opened in 2017, include Target, Century 21, Trader Joes and an outpost of Katz’s Deli.

Bookstore McNally Jackson recently announced they will expand to a 5,300 square foot space at the site.
