Not only surviving, but thriving through the decades, The Flicks celebrates its 35th year in Boise this fall.
The Flicks shows independent, foreign and art films on four screens, along with the best of the Hollywood movies, and it offers similarly themed movies in its DVD rental shop. Rick’s Café Americain, named after the club in the movie Cassablanca, offers a selection of hot entrees, snacks and desserts, and it offers beer, wine and a full espresso bar, complete with both indoor and patio seating.
The Flicks opens at 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and at noon Friday through Sunday, and it remains open until 9:30 p.m. every day. Tickets prices vary from $7.50 to $9.50, and free parking is available from 4 p.m. weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.
President Carole Skinner and The Flicks staff invite readers to experience The Flicks for themselves, and to keep up with happenings by signing up for its mailing list on its website, and by tuning in to 94.9FM the River at 8:10 a.m. on Friday mornings, when Skinner visits with Ken Bass and Deb Courson.
