Unlike other festivals that are held in empty classrooms or obscure venues, the Houston Comedy Film Festival is held in an amazing Digital Movie Theater called the "Alamo Drafthouse @ Vintage Park." All of the films are compiled and screened in HD on Blu-Ray DVD. The theater is a casual and relaxed atmosphere that has a full bar, restaurant menu and comfortable seating. It's the perfect venue for comedy.
