A new brewhouse is opening Thursday at East Towne Mall that will feature its own microbrewery and a movie theater, according to a release.

Flix Brewhouse opens Thursday with eight showings of “Ant Man and the Wasp,” officials said. The first showing starts at 6 p.m.

Flix is the first movie theater in the world to incorporate a fully-functioning microbrewery, according to the release. The stadium-seating dining rooms feature the latest high-definition digital cinema projection and sound technologies, wall-to-wall curved screens, high-back chairs and the Easy Glider moveable table top.

Flix brews nine of its own beers and offers 38 beers, a wine selection and some specialty non-alcohol drinks, officials said.

Madison’s Flix is the company’s sixth location and first in Wisconsin, according to the release. The theater occupies more than 39,000 square feet of the mall.

A full lineup of movies will start showing Friday. Tickets can be purchased online.
