    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.

    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.
