For Morgan County residents that want to laugh their heads off or love gore and want to see heads come off Flicks Family Films has something to please everyone.
Flicks Family Films offers a diverse selection of movies with everything from Disney to Horror. Walls lined with options there is something for everyone. Opening day Flicks had a vast choice of movies with around 5,600 choices. The ever growing video library now boasts 10,000+ movies. This provides a great selection of movie genres. The previous business, Simple Obsessions was something Jordan Johansen was interested when he moved back to Morgan after a few years away. He had always wanted to own his own business and he felt this was a good fit; however the business was not for sale. After some time Johansen decided to approach the owner to persuade him to sell. To his surprise “For Sale” signs had gone up that day. Within just a few weeks he put up the new Flicks sign and opened the doors of his own business.
Johansen has found one of the hardest parts of his job is keeping up with all the new movies coming out. With up to 15 movies coming out each week, he spends a lot of time watching movies to ensure he has quality movies and can help make recommendations for his customers. To fit in at least 20 hours of movie watching per week, he always has a movie on while doing household chores like folding laundry otherwise he says “It would be impossible”.
Instead of l standing in line to look at a limited selection of videos at a video rental kiosk, customers at Flicks have thousands of choices. Johansen feels attention put into seeking out the best movies and knowing the client base personally sets the company apart from other movie rental options. Johansen can recommend movies to anyone who comes in and is especially prepared with recommendations as his customers become regulars.
Every Friday and Saturday Flicks Family Films can cater your own private movie experience. Working with a well-known national take and bake pizza franchise, Flicks offers a variety of pizzas ranging from about $8.99-$16.99 depending on toppings. The reasonably priced pizzas include a two liter bottle of pop, one new release movie, and one library movie for free.
They also offer gourmet Bavarian nuts fresh roasted in the store. The smell is reason enough alone to make a visit. This indulgence will top off the night.
Flicks Family Films is conveniently located at State Street. Open Monday through Thursday 4-9, Friday and Saturday 3-10, closed Sunday.
