Election Day is Tuesday, and one West El Paso movie theater is giving its employees the morning off to allow them to do their civic duty.

Alamo Drafthouse will skip its first round of matinees on Tuesday to give staff members time to cast their ballots, according to a news release.

Employees who participated in early voting will still get the morning off to get a “few hours of sleep or some time to bring friends, family, and coworkers to the polls”, the theater wrote on its website.

The theater’s Tuesday schedule will kick off in the afternoon with a showing of “Halloween” at 1:35 p.m. Click HERE for a full list of showtimes.

Voters will be able to cast their ballots from 7 a.m .to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. For polling locations, sample ballots, and more, visit our Election Day Guide.
