Friday Finds – Movie Night!

Posted at 11:55 am on April 6, 2018

Now that my kids are older, movie night is no longer something we can only do if we have a babysitter.  Saying that, I still love to get away for a good old movie date night and I prefer to hit up our quaint, independent theaters.  For this week’s Friday Find we are featuring a few of my favorite movie theaters in the Des Moines area.
 
1)   Fleur Cinema and Café – One of Des Moines’ few remaining independent film theaters and named “The Coolest Movie Theater in Iowa”, the Fleur Cinema and Café does not disappoint.  You can always find a great selection of films throughout the year and you can enjoy an adult beverage while you watch.
 
2)  Flix Brewhouse – While not an independent theater, Flix is always an awesome movie experience.  You can order drinks and food off their menu and have it delivered right to your seat while watching the film.  Flix also is a great place to take the family for a more kid friendly movie. 
 
3)  Varsity Theater – One of the last single screen theaters in Des Moines, Varsity Theater is fantastic.  It is family run since 1938 and probably one of the only theaters that served real butter on their popcorn.  Good for watching the more unique movies you won’t find at the multiplexes.  
 
For your next movie night, consider checking out one of these theaters!
 
Just a reminder, Friday Finds is a way to show people the best local places to visit. If you have one you love and want the world to know about, please let me know so I can include it!
