Review of The Flicks

This theater is very cozy and different from regular theaters. Seats and screens are on the smaller side; if you are big and tall it might not be too comfortable to sit through a 2 hour long movie.They allow beer and other alcoholic drinks if you buy them in their cafe which has a rather decent selection of drinks. I noticed a lot of older people on Friday night; never saw so many old folks in a regular theater (maybe that is the reason of a nice and friendly atmosphere not typical for a regular movie theater). The Flicks also has discounts for students, military, seniors and children. Movies played there are also different from regular theaters, mostly independent and foreign movies. I will definitely return there.

This was a refreshing break foruswhilestaying in the city. The offerings for dinner were wider than you would expect,and though done on paper plates with plastic cups, it was just right. The theaters were small, but okay and very clean. At first I thought it would be neck-breaker, as all but front two rows taken,but no so much so. There could have been more leg room though; I am 5'-6" and felt like I was in an airliner'riding "coach". Overall, a hit with us though.

This is a cozy little place. You can have a complete dinner while you wait, such as a salmon burger, or order a glass of wine. The lobby area has a fireplace with seating area. The theater rooms are on the small and neat side. Much more fun than the regular theater experience.

Where else can you have micro-brew or a glass of wine while you watch an excellent independent movie. Small theatres create more intimate viewing.

While in Boise this past April, a friend recommended the "The Flicks" as being a really great place to see a movie.

She was right!

The Flicks is super charming. Not only did it have a great selection of movies to watch (an indie movie I had been dying to see for weeks) but its decor was cozy and quaint. I indulged in a chocolate chip cookie and glass of red wine for my film.

If you are not looking for a major commercialized mass movie theater like the AMCs, then the Flicks is your place to be!
