The <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/search?q=alamo+ritz">Alamo Ritz</a> is in the heart of <strong>6th Street</strong>, with two great theaters that allow you to order food and drinks (including liquor!) from the comfort of your seat. There's a whole host of film options, including <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/events?all_theme=Midnighters">Midnighters</a>, <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/events?all_theme=Visions">Visions</a>, <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/events?all_theme=Documentary+Spotlight">Documentary</a> and <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/events?all_theme=Narrative+Spotlight">Narrative Spotlight</a> categories and more! SXSatellite venues also return for SXSW 2013, and are hosted at the <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/?lsort=venue_all_days&venue=SXSatellite%3A+Alamo+Village">Alamo Village</a> to the North, and <a href="http://schedule.sxsw.com/?lsort=venue_all_days&venue=SXSatellite%3A+Alamo+Slaughter">Alamo Slaughter</a> to the South. These venues are outside the downtown footprint of the festival and are not serviced by the Film Festival Shuttle, but offer additional screening opportunities to our filmmakers and local film audience. They feature a full menu of food and drink - beer included!
