Flix Brewhouse plans for April 30 opening


Flix Brewhouse, a new movie theater will a full restaurant and brewery, has announced that it will open on Thursday April 30 in time to show the new comic book blockbuster Avengers 2.

While the theater anticipates a slow opening with only three of its eight screens available for the first few weeks, spokesman Greg Johnson said it was important to be open for the start of summer movie season.

“We fully expected to see Avengers 2 to do the most revenue in 2015,” he said. “This is pretty much the tent pole for the summer. The new Star Wars movie will also be huge, but that’s in December.”

Tickets are already available on pre-sale through their Web site www.flixbrewhouse.com. Right now, all three screens will be dedicated to Avengers 2, but other movies will be available very soon.

“We don’t want to go pedal to the metal,” Johnson said. “We want to make sure our guests get the best experiences, so we’ll open with three screens at first.”

Johnson said Flix Brewhouse is also working on showing the highly anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao as a special theater event.

Flix Brewhouse also held a job fair and hired roughly 100 team members but more application are still being accepted. Johnson said there will be a “dry-run” event where staff members will be trained and interested customers can show up for free food, drinks and a movie to help the staff train. He said details will be posted on the Facebook page for Flix Brewhouse Carmel.

This will be the company’s third location nationwide and first in Indiana. The theater was built at Merchants Square, behind the Marsh and near where Petco used to be. They claim to be the only first run movie theatre in the world to incorporate a fully functioning microbrewery. There’s no minimum and you don’t have to buy food to watch a movie at the theater. Seats are assigned when you buy a ticket. Movies will play throughout the day and not just at meal times.
