“A great little movie house!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

A cool, older theater that plays a lot of the stuff you won't see in the giant Megaplex movie theaters across this country. It's also very unique in several ways. Once you pass the ticket booth and walk through the front doors, you can either head left into a video rental store (yes, these still exist) which is also the pathway to one of the smaller theaters. If you continue to the right, there is a great open area with many different food and drink choices (wines and beers), along with tons of seating. The restaurant area has a great atmosphere and offers a wall of windows that looks out onto a pretty decent garden patio. The remaining theaters are a bit larger than the first mentioned, however, probably not any bigger than a decent high school theater. Prepare to get cozy with your neighbors in the smaller theater as the seating is a bit tight, but don't worry, the theater experience here is awesome.


You might as well do dinner, drinks and the movie here. No worries about driving after a few and possibly missing the movie. You can't miss it if you hang in-house.

“If you can't see it here, it ain't coming to Boise”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I guess this is the art house movie theater. When you just can't handle another car chase, explosion, or other Hollywood excesses, give your brain a treat and check out what's at Flicks. Your brain will thank you. Always some interesting films, and they don't play it safe.

“Movies and food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A great place to see a movie. They often show foreign films and other films that you will not see at the usual chain theaters. A good place to meet with friends for a little food, beer and wine before or after the movie.

“Artsy Crowd”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Boise's arts theater. Nice because of the variety of food served but the place is very crowded and the theaters are small and uncomfortable. Don't expect the comforts of today's regular theaters. Some would say that is part of the charm but I like to be comfortable when I am sitting for two hours.

“Quaint!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

One can obtain a quick meal, beverage (alcoholic or not) quickly and efficiently and enter your comfy but close theater to view a current film, especially if it's not the big theater thriller.
