Upscale cinema and on-site craft brewer Flix Brewhouse™ will open in Main Marketplace in spring of 2017 at the northwest corner of Main Street and FM 423 in Little Elm, Texas.
LITTLE ELM, TX – Flix Brewhouse™, the world’s only combination first-run cinema and dine-in microbrewery, will become the entertainment anchor at Main Marketplace at Main St. and FM 423 in Little Elm, Texas, developer Goveia Commercial Real Estate announced today. The Denton County location will be Flix Brewhouse’s second in Texas, with a third slated to open in Sugar Land, a Houston suburb, later in 2017 as the cinema-dining chain continues its expansion through the Southwest and Midwest. Central Texas-based Flix Brewhouse was created in 2011 with a goal to be best-in-class among popular-priced cinema-eatery concepts. Its Little Elm location will complement newly opened units in Des Moines, Iowa and Carmel, Indiana, as well as the company’s Albuquerque theater opening in late 2016.
The Little Elm cinema brewery will be approximately 38,500 square feet and feature eight auditoriums equipped with parabolic screens, state-of-the-industry digital audio and video, including Dolby Atmos™ immersive sound, extra wide plush seating, and the company’s innovative EasyGlider tabletop console. Viewers will enjoy unobtrusive, in-theater service from a complete cooked-to-order menu that will be tailored to local tastes, as well as a broad selection of soft drinks and adult beverages, including a dozen signature beers brewed on-premises in a state-of-the-art seven-barrel brewery, as well as up to an additional 30 regional and local craft beers. In addition to showing the latest Hollywood blockbusters, Flix Brewhouse has a wide variety of special features and events, including a Pro-Am homebrew competition, Brewmaster dinners, on-site Beer 101 brewing and tasting seminars and numerous themed classic film series and interactive experiences, including dinner comedies, sing-alongs, and Saturday morning pajama parties.
Flix also celebrates unique food and craft beer creations with a range of ongoing dining and tasting events, showcasing beer from other craft breweries as well as its own. “We are incredibly excited to bring our unique cinema dining experience to north Texas,” said Matt Silvers, Senior Vice President of Real Estate for Flix Brewhouse. “Being able to play a part in the growth of the craft beer scene in the Dallas area with our dine-in cinema brewery will make Main Marketplace the ‘go to’ entertainment destination for families and date night alike. The Flix Brewhouse brand will be a fantastic fit in Little Elm.”
