El Pasoans who want to watch the latest blockbusters from Hollywood while getting their munch on and sipping on craft beer have another choice.

Flix Brewhouse, which combines a microbrewery with a movie theater and a restaurant, has opened its first location in El Paso at the West Towne Marketplace located at I-10 and Paseo del Norte in Far West El Paso.

Similar in concept to The Alamo Drafthouse where movie patrons can enjoy a dine-in movie experience, the Round Rock-based chain sets itself apart with a fully functioning in-house microbrewery.

What that means to movie-goers is that they can enjoy dozens of beers on tap, along with their munchies and the latest first-run movies. The El Paso Flix will brew six beers in-house from company-wide recipes, and three created and developed by their El Paso brewermaster.

Menu items include tried and true favorites like pizzas, burgers, chicken wings, and chips and queso. A kids menu for the 12 and under crowd has things like mac and cheese, chicken tenders, and grilled cheese sandwich.

As for the movie-watching experience itself, all 9 of the stadium seating auditoriums have been outfitted with the latest high-definition digital and audio technologies, and cushy high back chairs with sliding table tops.

Because Flix is more than just a dine-in cinema, you don't necessarily have to want to watch a movie to go. The brewpub and restaurant as well as the patio are open to both moviegoers and those who just want to hang.
