Alamo’s Tim League versus a culture of “Netflixing and chill” (No, really, that is the phrase that was used.)

Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League was on CNBC today talking about the Drafthouse’s business model and what he sees as the Drafthouse’s role in a changing media landscape.

Here is the link.

A few things to note:

The host does indeed contrast the experience of going to the Drafthouse with staying home “and just Netflixing and chill.” Kudos to Tim for keeping a straight face. I sure couldn’t have because I am 12.

He remains a very big Bernie Sanders fan. This is the first time he’s felt fully engaged in politics in a long time.

He still doesn’t like texting in movies.
