“Different and enjoyable.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Fun to be able to enjoy a glass of excellent wine along with the popcorn and the movie - their food offerings are yummy, too. The movies they offer are always interesting and different.

“Great hide away.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great hide away! My husband and I love to enjoy the Friday matinee while the kids are at school. We enjoy their yummy food with a glass if wine and if I don't finish, it's fine I'm allowed to take it in. The crowd is older, but we like that since we are usually on a little date.

“Fun for something different”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I went to see a movie that was only showing at the Flicks. What a fun place. I wish I had known they served so many different types of food there. You can choose from salads, sandwiches, soups or the normal movie popcorn. Also, how nice to have a glass of wine while watching a movie. The theaters are very small, but not in a bad way. I had no problems finding a good spot to sit. It's so refreshing to try something new. It can get a little crowded at certain times, but not at all like the huge theaters. It's such a fun place to go for a "date night"!

“good atmosphere”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

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.
