Round Rock-based Flix Brewhouse moves closer to opening in Mansfield. Venture Commercial Real Estate announced that Chris Corbin represented Flix Brewhouse in securing a site at The Shops at Broad in Mansfield. This will be the second location in North Texas for the company’s dine-in movie theater concept. A Flix Brewhouse at Main Marketplace in Little Elm, announced last year, is scheduled to open in the spring of 2018.
The Flix Brewhouse concept combines the latest Hollywood productions, exceptional brewed on-premises craft beer and delicious food – all served in theater. Flix differs from other dine-in theater concepts as the only first-run cinema that is also a fully functioning craft brewery. Flix currently has locations operating in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Carmel, Indiana; Des Moines, Iowa; and Round Rock with construction underway in Chandler, Arizona and Madison, Wisconsin in addition to Mansfield and Little Elm.
The 35,000-square foot Mansfield theater will be located at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 287 and East Broad Street. Corbin with Venture Commercial represented Flix Brewhouse, while Andrew Lehner with CBRE represented the landlord.
“We are proud to have assisted Flix Brewhouse in finding the right site in Little Elm for its DFW market debut, and now our focus is on expanding into Mansfield,” said Corbin, a senior vice president with Venture. “The Shops at Broad provides movie patrons in Mansfield and surrounding cities an opportunity to experience the world’s only first-run movie theater and eatery with craft beer brewed on site, all under one roof.”
