Review Case Study 2.2 related to The Alamo Drafthouse (Bordoloi, pp. 56-59). The Alamo Drafthouse is a different kind of business, whether you call it a bar, a restaurant, or a movie theater. Is it a movie theater that serves burgers or a bar that shows movies? The Alamo combines multiple services and compromises on several fronts to make the combination work. Alamo customers eat and drink while watching
movies. Tim, who owns and operates the business with his wife Carrie, candidly admits that the service is bad at his establishment: “Our service is pretty bad, but intentionally so. It’s a compromise because we want our service to be as minimal as possible. It’s different from a restaurant, where you want the waiter to ask you if you need anything. We depend on customers to tell us.” Review the Case Study and answer the following questions in Case Study format (https://essaypro.com/blog/casestudy);
