I see a movie here every 2-3 years. The first was shortly after they opened. Flooding mens room, and all. Most recently I saw Speed Racer here. Way back when (about 10 years ago) it seemed almost as if it was all alone in the neighborhood. Now they need a bigger sign, as I almost missed the place.
Flix is a decent family owned theater surrounded by chain owned monster theaters. It has been operating for about 15 years and when it opened was surrounded by nothing. Now, as a previous poster said, it can be difficult to find and coule really use a new, larger, brighter well designed sign.
The theater itself has ample parking, large lobby but is very disorganized on handing ticket sales. The entrance is poorly marked and less than welcoming.
The theater just missed the stadium seating transition and when built went with the traditional seating arrangement. A theater or two at Flix removed some rows to give patrons “stretch seating”, a gimmick that while comfortable just comes across as a gimmick.
The theater can use some maintenance, the spit balls on the screens have been there forever, the touched up white paint on the screens is very noticeable, sound spillover is a problem in some of their theaters. Though, these are all problems at the big chain theater down the street too.
Flix is a decent theater showing first run movies but is often overlooked by the chain theaters that surround it 5 miles in each direction and by the local dollar theater. I wish they would start to offer some of the independent and smaller movies that do not get seen by many people.
Flix is a good choice for watching a movie and you can help out a local owned business instead of sending your money to a corporate. There are only a couple non-large corporation theaters that are preventing this area from being a monopoly for theaters.
Now on Dipson’s website, glad to see a good chain is growing.
Dipson’s major upgrades are almost finished – they replaced every surface in the place and then some – digital sound, stadium seating with leather seats, two rows of D-Box Motion Code seats in one of their larger 3D auditoriums (4 3D systems in all). The theaters are a tad smaller than Regal’s but the quality of the presentations is finally as superb as Dipson’s other locations (Flix was showing signs of wear and tare – – now its on the way to becoming the finest multiplex in the area).
Now known as Flix Stadium 10.
What a great redo of a theater. Dipson did it right.
All the auditoriums have been converted to stadium seating, all digital projection, 3D and d-Box (don’t bother, what a poorly crafted gimmick).
The prices for the snacks are very fair, the staff friendly and the quality of the presentation is very good. My only complaint is when they redid the theaters they should have redesigned the ticket selling area and snack area. Poorly layed out.
This is my theater of choice even though I need to pass regal to get here.
Great job Dipson!
