    Great first experience and would suggest anyone thinking of going. I'm not to fond of the night scene here but the films they play here are great. #Phoenix #ShopLocalBrands #Films

    Grungy, hip and fun! If you haven't been you must come. Artsy, foreign and cult films. And, you can take your drink to your seat! Open every night expect only for Christmas. Live music on weekends.

  • Jon H.

    Neat place that shows indie movies and has decent alcohol selection. Can't say I recommend the popcorn though, it's kind of terrible.

    Such indie. Very alcohol. Wow.

  • Bubs

    If you are interested in unusual or independent film this place is reccomended. Wine glasses, bottles fit in the drink holders 😆 Thumbs up

    Catch an indie film in a trendy neighborhood in downtown Phoenix! You almost feel like your in a art bar until you get seated in the movie venue! Keep a punch card and look out for their latest deals!

    If you are looking for a different kind of night out, definitely try out this place! Always show independent movies in a theater accompanied with bar drinks. Complete hipster feel, and love it!

    FilmBar is both an arts theater and bar, showing many local/amateur/independent films, which is huge for the local arts scene. The beer list is fantastic too - great for hardcore movie fans.

    Come for happy hour! However many dollars off beer, $5 off bottles of wine & stay for a cool film you wouldn't see anywhere else. Also, great place for a date or just to hang out with some friends.
