Like going on a road trip, going out to the movies is one of those experiences that everyone loves to do. A good movie, seen on the big screen, can be the perfect way to top off an evening. A good movie can also be a great activity to do in the evening hours once your road trip activities have finished for the day. No sense doing too much late night driving anyway, you want to be able to see all that scenery you’re passing by.
Boise has an awesome little movie theater that you really need to check out next time you are there. The Flicks is a four screen cinema in Downtown Boise that also offers espresso, a cafe, and an outside patio for eating and hanging out. Beer and wine are served at The Flicks, and this adds to the grown up feel of the establishment.
What you will find when you go out to enjoy an evening at The Flicks is an intimate setting where friends can comfortably watch a film together while enjoying food, drink, and a great atmosphere. What you won’t find are big budget summer blockbusters coming straight out of Hollywood. The Flicks shows a great selection of independent, foreign, and art films. The best of what comes out of Hollywood will make its way there too, but mainly what you will be viewing is the kind of film that doesn’t see time on the big screen in most other cinemas.
Boise is a great little city to visit and a true gem in the Pacific Northwest. Part of what makes it so great are the special little places like The Flicks. If you find yourself there, you should definitely go and check out a show while there.
