Flix Brewhouse El Paso ‘Getting Operationally Ready’ to Reopen
Article updated to reflect newly announced date of reopening.
Here’s the latest regarding the reopening of the Flix Brewhouse in El Paso.
While every other theater chains across El Paso is back to showing movies, the dine-in movie theater and brewhouse, located in the West Town Marketplace on the far west side, has been closed indefinitely since the end of October 2020 and recently found itself locked out by its landlord for failure to pay rent. The company even filed for bankruptcy.
Commenting on the Flix Brewhouse El Paso Facebook on July 31, CEO Allan Reagan explained that the company was in that situation because it had not received its COVID-19 relief funding from the federal program.
But finally, light at the end of the tunnel.
“Just last week we finally received the relief funds,” Reagan told El Paso Inc. He said the cash infusion will allow them to come out of bankruptcy and reopen the El Paso location “hopefully sometime next month.”
How confident is he that El Pasoans will be sinking their teeth into a Duke and wash it down with a cold FLIX Golden Ale while watching a first-run movie?
“This month we've brewed several batches of fresh beer, so we are getting operationally ready,” he posted on Facebook. “Right now a delicious batch of our Mexican lager Lucha Libre is cold lagering behind those closed doors. In the meantime, everybody stay safe as we all work through this nasty Delta variant.”
On September 10, Flix announced on its Facebook the theater will reopen on Thursday, Sept. 23.
