The Flicks plays the best movies. You could go there not even knowing what is on and just choose one. They're all great. They have food and wine plus the usual movie snacks. Great for dates, friends or solo.

The Flicks! Tucked away in a corner of town, with a small parking lot and unspectacular marquee at the entrance. Arrive early because the charm starts at the box office with friendly chatting and advice on movie selection. Inside, a snack bar serves wine, beer...More

You will enjoy The Flicks for the great independent movies, good food & wine selection, and atmosphere. The Flicks offers great entertainment. There is indoor and outdoor dining. The Flicks is a Boise icon and worth a visit for a fun night on the town.
