Austin-based Alamo Draft­house’s re­cent growth spurt con­tin­ues, with the com­pany an­nounc­ing plans Mon­day to open a third New York City the­ater.

The cin­ema will have seven screens and will be lo­cated in City Point, a new 1.8 mil­lion­square-foot mixed-use project cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion in down­town Brook­lyn. It should open in 2015, Alamo said.

The­aters are also in the works in Yonkers and on Man­hat­tan’s Up­per West Side.

“Although more than two years on the hori­zon, I can tell you that the City Point Brook­lyn Alamo will be our best the­ater yet,” Alamo founder and CEO Tim League said.

The chain also is build­ing the­aters in sev­eral other cities, in­clud­ing San Fran­cisco.
