Consider us your new video store, or specifically the “Staff Picks” section of a video store. Every single title on Alamo on Demand is curated by a member of the Drafthouse team. If it is here, one of us wants you to see it.
Let us help bring you the movies that you want to see! Feel free to drop us a line about a movie you want to watch, suggest a retrospective that needs to happen, or a genre you think is not well represented.

I can’t stream any of the content, what’s going on?
Check your minimum system requirements above. We recommend that you update to the latest version of your browser.
We use adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. For High Definition (HD) streaming we recommend VDSL, cable or fibre connections as we cannot guarantee consistent HD streaming on ADSL.
What happens if I forget my password?
Simply click Forgot your password on the Sign In page, enter the email address you used when you created an account and a link to reset your password will be sent to you.
Why does video playback stall or not play smoothly?
If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback.
What devices can I Chromecast from?
Do I get Victory points for renting or buying a VOD title?
That’s the plan eventually, but we’ve still got some wires to untangle. Expect more on that down the road.
Can I use an Alamo Drafthouse gift card to rent or purchase?
Can I pay with the credit card stored in the Alamo mobile app?
They’re different apps with different settings. You’ll need to enter your payment details into Alamo On Demand separately – Alamo On Demand doesn’t know about the credit card you use to buy movie tickets.
Can I use Season Pass to pay for VOD?
No, right now Season Pass is only for use for tickets to theatrical screenings.
