Behind the Scenes of FilmBar Phoenix
J Seth Anderson
Not too much beats a good movie and a drink. It's why we're pretty excited about FilmBar Phoenix, the independent theater opening this November at 815 N. Second Street.
Since the departure of The Palms Theatre and the Sombrero Playhouse, downtown has been indie theater-less, and the multi-plex AMC at the Arizona Center just isn't cutting it.
FilmBar will be a 21-and-over venue that will serve beer and wine as well as espresso from Cartel Coffee Lab. Go ahead, add it to your growing list of "reasons to be downtown."
Check out a rundown of the space and planned hours after the jump ...
Note: The downtown theater will have downtown parking -- meaning the 16 spots on the north side of the building is all FilmBar has for now. Hopes are, according to FilmBar, that people will use other forms of transportation (Second Street and Garfield is just a few blocks from the Roosevelt and Central light rail station).
And as rumor has it, "Movie and Mimosa Sundays" are the works.
