Take one: Cinebarre opens in Thornton

Just as the lights go out on Neighborhood Flix, a new flick/foods fusion operation has debuted in the metro area. Cinebarre, which has two locations on the East Coast, chose Thornton as the site of its first Western outpost for two reasons, according to general manager Brooke Bieber: our love of beer and this area's "coolness factor."

Unlike Neighborhood Flix, which had a full bar and food designed by Via chef James Mazzio, this chain's focus is on more casual fare -- burgers, pizzas and apps -- and beer, with more than twenty kinds offered. But the Cinebarre in the Thornton Town Center, just off I-25, also has eight movie screens showing first-run films, a beer and wine bar, a jukebox lounge and plans to host happy hours and karaoke nights. Oh, and one more thing to add to your viewing pleasure: No children under six are allowed, and anyone under eighteen must be accompanied by an adult.
