The new outdoor area in downtown Phoenix features a FilmBar, Food Trucks and Fitness | Phoenix food & drink

PHOENIX (3TV / CBS 5) – Downtown Phoenix now has a fun outdoor space with local food trucks, a beer garden, outdoor films, and fitness classes.

Pemberton PHX, named for the historic Pemberton House, is a collective space for various local businesses to dine and have fun al fresco during the COVID-19 pandemic. The popular Phoenix FilmBar, which had to close the doors to its indoor theater, finds its new permanent home here and offers outdoor screenings of cult classics, fan favorites and indie films.

“We knew that our fans were uncomfortable watching movies inside,” said Andrea Canales, film programmer at Phoenix FilmBar. “For us, we wanted to continue the community that we have been building for 10 years.”

The outdoor FilmBar has a huge projection screen, socially distributed seats and heaters when it gets cold. Canales said they are still working on their summer plans and that they may need to get creative in the heat. FilmBar is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week. Guests can purchase tickets for their demonstrations on their website and rent the screen for a private tour as well.

As you move through this outdoor playground, you can find food and drink from local places like Dino’s Pizza and Abnormal Beer Company. More options will follow shortly.

Take a stroll down to the wellness lawn for fitness classes like HIIT and yoga. Fitness classes are taught by local instructors and start at 11:30 am on Saturdays. Reservations are required for fitness classes and can be made here.

Pemberton PHX is located at 1121 N. 2nd Street, directly across from Margaret T. Hance Park, and is open 11 a.m. through Wednesday through Sunday. More information is available at
