What kind of movies do you show?
FilmBar screens mostly new indie and foreign films. Additionally, each month we present a themed retro film series each month, offering a different retro film Fri-Mon for just $5! Always interesting and fun stuff! We also showcase the best in cult classics and have regular screenings of local filmmakers’ films, as well!
How much are tickets?
Full price tickets are just $9.00 for new indie and foreign films and just $5 for retro films! Monday – Thursday, you can get a pint of beer or glass of wine and a movie ticket for just $12! Add a small popcorn for just $1 more on these nights!
How can I buy tickets at the door?
You can purchase your tickets from any staff member (usually your bartender). Just belly up to the bar and ask!
Do I need to buy a ticket to enter the bar?
Not at all! You can (and should!) just swing by for a drink, if you’re not in the mood for a film.
I have a Living Social voucher I’d like to use. How do I do that?
Do you have Gift Cards?
Yes — and at any denomination! Just ask your bartender for details.
Should I buy my tickets online?
FilmBar currently has only 70 seats, so we highly recommend buying your tickets online – especially for Friday and Saturday nights!
It’s my birthday!
We’ve got a present for you! Come on down for a free ticket to a show on your birthday (or within a few days either side of it)!
How did you come up with this idea?
FilmBar was conceived and is owned by Kelly Aubey — a disgruntled ex computer programmer who, inspired by theaters he experienced while travelling, got tired of waiting for a great place to watch a movie and who believes that the people of Phoenix are ready for the increasingly impressive culture that downtown Phoenix offers.
The idea came to him 35,000 feet in the air while flying to LA for a business trip.
