I love the intimacy of the Flicks. And that you can get something to eat, beer and wine to eat in the theater. Local business. The films are not generally available in the chain theaters.

I always enjoy eating here before or after viewing a movie. It has a good greek salad and a tasty lasagna. Above all, one can hear their table conversation.

The Flicks. A venerable institution. Easy walk from downtown hotels, and at least one film that may interest you. Rick's lasagna is baked to order and is very tasty. Good food, beer, wine and coffee. Go have some good food and see a movie. Hard...More

We've been to the Flicks many times, but last Friday was our first time coming early and enjoying dinner at Rick's Cafe Americain. We snagged a seat on the patio, on a warm evening under the shade. The atmosphere was inviting, festive but still intimate....More
