Things to do in Lubbock

Despite being recently rated the number one most boring town in the United States by Movoto (by the way, who are they, and what do they know?), Lubbock is full of fun things to do year-round. From exploring one of the museums or simply going to the movies, your options are numerous.

Museum of Texas Tech

The Tech Museum offers educational, scientific, cultural, and research elements of the university.

Premiere IMAX

This theater located in the South Plains Mall is great to view any action and adventure flick, and is great for date night.

Stars & Stripes Drive-In

Tinseltown & Movies 16

Alamo Drafthouse

South Plains Mall

Get a taste of the past by going to see a double feature at Lubbock’s Drive-In Movie Theater.

The Alamo Drafthouse serves as a unique movie-going experience where not only can patrons purchase regular concession stand items but full meals and a plethora of beverages as well. Not only does the Drafthouse provide the newest films for viewing, but also hosts sing-alongs and quote-alongs to previously released movies.

Lubbock’s traditional movie theaters are also great, friendly places to enjoy a movie. They have movies in high definition and 3D.

Shopping sprees are always fun, and the mall contains a wide variety of stores to meet all of your material needs.
