After reopening in August following a months-long closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, Flix Brewhouse's Round Rock location closed its doors a second time Nov. 16. The business cited ongoing concerns with the coronavirus, government enforcement and limited film content as cause for the closure.

"We are making the difficult decision to once again close our doors," the announcement read. "After looking at this for the past few weeks, it has become abundantly clear that the economics simply don't work to operate this way."


Alongside its theater's closure, Flix Brewhouse has temporarily discontinued its to-go and restaurant services in Round Rock, per the release. The business will not be open "in any capacity at the moment until further notice."

"We hope some day to see you all again at the movies," the announcement concluded.

The Round Rock-based movie theater, eatery and microbrewery first opened July 1, 2011.
