    If I was my girlfriend Rafaella I would avoid the snacks and bring some KFC fried chicken in the theater

    Plenty of mid-movie commentary from the entirety of the audience. Fun and festive!

    Really comfy seats. Clean and not usually very crowded.

    This place is generally considerably cheaper. But the best part is it's generally mot very crowded. So you'll likely be able to get a seat even if you're late, and gonna have good place too.

    AMC magic Johnson 9 is a little bit dirty but at least the popcorn is delicious

    This is kind of the only major theater in the area, but people get loud in there. You can find in crowded screenings though.

    It's ok. Has nothing on regal theatres or amc in Times Square as far as cleanliness and appearance

    Only movie theatre in upper manhattan but they only show certain movies - and gets others weeks after the release dates. It's only 4 blocks away but I rarely go :(

  • Tohm S.

    Matinee shows are the best way to avoid the crowds. But there'll always be someone trying to get in the credits yelling at the movie. Take a seat.

    Movie theater smells weird, but the iconic black faces along the wall make for a good walk through. Comfy seats and food taste decent.

    Before noon prices are now $7 but still cheaper than everywhere else. The theater never fills up and you can always grab a good seat. Plus, the concession is usually cheaper by a buck or two.

    Get here early...ish.

    Preston Roberts Jr. · May 3, 2013
  • Quincy D.

    $6 or bust, wort every penny.

    Quincy Davis · April 14, 2013
  • Harlem A.

    If you're an early riser It's best to go for the $6 matinee which ends at noon. Weekends mean that the movie has to compete with the interactive audience to be heard. Not to mention the serial texts

    Harlem Ambassador · April 9, 2013
  • Colleen S.

    Come before noon. $6 ticket, quiet crowd and the theaters/bathrooms are still clean.

    Colleen Stewart · April 7, 2013

  • Harlem A.

    Matinees end at 12noon and that is likely the only time that you''ll be able to hear the movie without the additional commentary or witness someone on a Twitter rant. Convenient despite it's volume.

    Harlem Ambassador · March 21, 2013
  • Vincent R.

    Most of the people that work here are rude food sucks any day other then Sunday is just a bad day to come never see a movie the week it is released not here

    Never spend your money here, the place is nasty. I asked the staff to clean the theater because when I walked in food was everywhere. They told me no

    Came for a documentary slated to start at 3p. Left at 5: ppl were still waiting! Apparently some sort of part malfunctioned, they couldn't move us to another theater, and more bs. Never coming back.

  • Gloria C.

    This is a last resort of you wanna see a movie before noon on the weekend for $6. The staff are rude, the place is unruly, and it's apparent that it's okay to bring babies to R-rated movies.

    Gloria Collazo · June 29, 2012

    Try the bbq rib Empanadas n the 3 cheese mac n cheese...yum!
