Flix Brewhouse, the world’s only first-run dine-in cinema brewpub, announced today it will open a seven-screen luxury theater on Albuquerque’s east side in early 2024. Located at the corner of Tramway Blvd. and Indian School Rd., the 28,000 square-foot cinema will be completely overhauled to current Flix Brewhouse standards, including 100% luxury electric recliners, crystal-clear all-laser projection and Dolby immersive sound. Leased from Hinkle Income Properties, the new 720-seat Flix Brewhouse dine-in cinema brewery replaces the former Regal/UA arthouse.
“Flix Brewhouse has become synonymous with excellence in cinema on the west side of Albuquerque, and we are excited to bring our brand of experiential cinema, award-winning craft beer, and delicious food to the east side right next to the Hinkle Fun Center,” said Allan Reagan, Flix founder.
“We’re thrilled to bring a world-class concept like Flix Brewhouse to our High Ridge Center,” said Bryan Hinkle, principal of the family-owned Albuquerque developer. “Flix is consistently voted Albuquerque’s best movie theater, and when we had the opportunity to retenant the theater, getting Flix to come to the east side was our top choice. It’s a superb complement to our Fun Center next door, and will create a destination location for quality entertainment in the Northeast Heights.” Hinkle said.
“As a native New Mexican, I could not be more excited to bring our eleventh Flix Brewhouse to the east side of Albuquerque,” said Flix CEO Chance Robertson. “We love the Land of Enchantment, and cannot wait to showcase the best of Hollywood, our Fan, Fam, and BeerFest offerings, and best-in-class digital technology and hospitality.”
In addition to state-of-the-industry projection, sound and luxury recliner seating, the Albuquerque East Flix Brewhouse will feature proprietary “Easy Glider 2” sliding and pivoting tabletops from which moviegoers will enjoy unobtrusive, in-theater service from a complete cooked-to-order menu. Flix plans to offer a broad selection of drinks including signature cocktails and craft beers brewed on premises, which guests can enjoy with or without a movie.
Flix Brewhouse prides itself on crafting memorable moviegoing. In addition to showing the latest Hollywood blockbusters, the cinema brewery celebrates throwback favorites through one-of-a-kind experiences including fan events, family movie parties, and all-inclusive beer dinners showcasing their award-winning brews. FanFests are highly popular interactive events where guests enjoy a special themed menu, in-theater contests, and movie-themed merchandise giveaways. Even the youngest of guests are catered to by the Flix Junior series, featuring coloring activities, increased lighting, and reduced volume levels for sensitive ears.
About Flix Brewhouse
Flix Brewhouse was founded in Round Rock, Texas in 2011 and is the world’s only first-run cinema brewery. Flix combines the latest Hollywood productions, award-winning, brewed on-premises craft beer and delicious food – all served “in theater,” to guests in their luxury dining recliners. The genesis of the Flix concept stems directly from consumer demand for a better, more value-oriented way to watch a movie. Designed from the inside out to deliver a premium viewing and dining experience at an affordable price, Flix Brewhouse addresses the primary concern of moviegoers everywhere – the rising cost of admissions and concessions and the typically poor value realized at the conventional multiplex. The company has nine successful operating locations in six states and plans to open its 10th location in suburban Fort Worth, Texas in September. https://flixbrewhouse.com
