Alamo Drafthouse in La Vista. A reopening date for the Midtown Crossing location hasn’t been set.

Alamo Drafthouse in La Vista is reopening Thursday with two new movies: “The New Mutants” and “Bill & Ted Face the Music.”

Tickets are on sale now for those films. A third film, “Tenet,” opens Sept. 3, and tickets will be on sale for it soon.

The theater, which serves food and drinks to people at their seats, has been closed for five months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve all dearly missed going to the movies and with our many enhanced safety protocols, we feel that we can come together again confidently and securely,” Alamo Drafthouse CEO Shelli Taylor said in a press release.

“The New Mutants” is a horror film based on a Marvel Comics superhero team. It stars Maisie Williams and Charlie Heaton. “Bill & Ted Face the Music” is the third film in a franchise about two slackers in a band who are unaware that their music will help form a utopian society in the future. It stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter.

In a nod to pandemic face coverings, Alamo Drafthouse will celebrate films featuring masked heroes and villains in September. The movies will include “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Silence of the Lambs,” among others.

A reopening date for the Alamo Drafthouse in Midtown Crossing has not yet been determined, a company spokesman said.

Alamo plans to reopen half of its locations across the country over the next two weeks, according to the press release.
