Flix Brewhouse has signed a 15-year lease with Shops at Broad in Mansfield, Texas to complete and open a nine-screen luxury theatre this fall. The nearly 40,000-square-foot facility was originally scheduled to open in 2020 until construction stopped with the COVID-19 shutdown and remained suspended due to subsequent distress in the movie theatre and shopping center industries.
"We are beyond thrilled to at last bring our unique brand of dining and entertainment to life in Mansfield.,” said Flix founder Allan Reagan. “A long, strange trip it's been indeed, but the delay has enabled us to invest in the latest cinema technology such as 100 percent laser projection, offer compelling entertainment choices beyond movies, and evolve our food and beverage offerings to best-in-class."
Shops at Broad spokesman Sam Kartalis said, "Since current ownership took over this regional center south of Fort Worth three months ago, leasing activity has been through the roof. Flix Brewhouse is a world-class concept and operator and will be the linchpin for additional planned major entertainment concepts coming soon to Shops at Broad."
"This new location marks a real milestone for our company," said Flix CEO Chance Robertson. "The movies are back in force in 2023 and our team is thrilled to bring our tenth dine-in cinema brewpub nationally and fifth in Texas to the Shops at Broad. Mansfield is a wonderful community and we're excited to be a part of it. It's the perfect complement to our existing metroplex location on the north side of DFW near Frisco and Little Elm. We cannot wait to fire up the projectors, pour the first award-winning craft beer, and allow our guests to relax in luxury while enjoying a great film."
