The Alamo Drafthouse released a statement regarding the closure of its South Lamar location Sunday. The company writes:

Late last night, a staff member who has been with the Alamo Drafthouse Lamar for nearly a decade was killed in an accident. We have closed the Lamar theater for the day so that the rest of the team can be with their families and friends. If you have tickets for today, we will automatically be issuing refunds to everyone later this week. If you purchased through Fandango, they will have to issue the refund. If you have any questions, please email refund.lamar@drafthouse.com. We apologize for the inconvenience.
