New type of cinema grill eyeing Indianapolis

Flix BrewhouseCinema-eateries have come and gone in Indianapolis, but a more modern take on the well-worn model may be headed to the city. Local real estate sources attending the annual convention of the International Council of Shopping Centers in Las Vegas say Flix Brewhouse in Round Rock, Texas, is looking to expand, and Indianapolis is on the list. Flix bills itself as the only first-run movie theater in the world to incorporate a fully functioning microbrewery while serving fresh food. The company says it brews six of its own beers and offers 40 other draft brands, in addition to a wide selection of wines. The “Flix Mix” lobby is open seven days a week to non-moviegoers who might want to grab a bite and a beer without viewing a film. Where Flix might locate remains uncertain.

  • Hope So!
    I really miss Hollywood Bar & Filmworks, and I think this concept can work here. When I clicked on this, I was really hoping it was going to be Alamo Drafthouse, because those are amazing.
  • This would be great to have
    My wife and I really miss Cinema Grill and would love to see a place like this take its place.
  • Yes Please
    I was so excited to go to the Cinema Grill when I moved close to it and I was so disappointed when I saw they closed. This place would be a great addition to Indy. Hopefully marketing it as a BrewHouse will help. Latitude 39 is thriving when other bowling alleys are closing, so we'll see.
  • Indie lounge
    Keystone Art Cinema and Indie Lounge is a great place to enjoy a movie and have a cocktail. They show a wide array of movies from independent film and documentaries to more mainstream (currently they have Ironman 3, Great Gatsby, Star Trek, and Hangover 3.) They also do a summer midnight series as well as one in October of popular midnight movies and cult classics.
  • Keystone Arts
    I would like to reiterate: Keystone Arts Cinema and the adjacent Indie Lounge offer an excellent venue for not only independent films, but also first-run films. Plus, the addition of the Indie Lounge makes for an ideal way to spend an afternoon or evening: get some wine or cocktails or beer and watch a movie. How could things get better than that?
  • Cocktails
    If all you want is cocktails, the AMC Showplace 17 is putting in a bar. I'm talking a full featured, get served food at your table and watch a movie experience. We don't have that now, and CinemaGrill paled in comparison to what was offered at Hollywood Bar & Filmworks before the owner went insane and left town.
  • Looking forward to it
    I really enjoyed the Hollywood Bar and Film works, they had good food and decent prices I understand that parking was one of the reasons for its closing. If other major events were going downtown parking was expensive if not impossible. Hope the new cinema bar will have parking.
    • Hollywood B&FW and Parking
      Aside from maybe Race Day, parking in downtown Indy is NEVER impossible. People are just lazy and want suburban conveniences.
    • Parking
      I absolutely HATE HATE HATE people that complain about parking in downtown and Broad Ripple. I have never once had trouble finding parking in either location. Even during the Super Bowl, I was able to find parking. Granted, I had to walk a little bit more, but walking would help one of the fattest and unhealthiest metros in the country.
    • Ugh parking
      Why do Hoosiers think they have to park an arm's reach away from everything? Even on event nights downtown, there's plenty of free parking if you're willing to walk a few blocks. It's so sad that businesses fail because Hoosiers are lazy.

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
