But you don’t have to be alone when settling in the theater seats. You can invite up to 30 friends.

For only $150, you and up to 30 guests can watch one of 40 films on a big screen. It’s called “Your Own Private Alamo.”

You also have to buy at least $150 worth of theater foods, according to Variety.

Right now only two locations are participating in the program — Austin, Texas, and Denver, Colorado.
