    The full experience of going to see an indie movie in a New York theater. The Cafe area is a lovely space, and gives it a classy vibe you don't get anywhere else. Great experience overall

    One of a few theaters in the city that have a comfortable waiting area. Plus a cafè that is stocked with healthier snacks. (Don't worry they have classic cinema snacks as well!)

    Love the movies, the space, and the people here. Theaters might be small and you can hear the subway, but just sit close to the screen and enjoy the charm of it all. Try an almond raspberry bar too.

    THE place to go to watch a new Indie movie. The food selection is unlike anything you'll usually see at a movie theater, but we still can't help but get their amazing popcorn.

    One of the oldest art house theaters to still be open today. Check out their selection of foreign and independent films. Support an important downtown institution.

    One of the oldest film centers in NYC. The place has been renovated. Special screenings with guest stars are held there sometimes. The theaters are cosy. The bar is awesome.

    My 2nd favorite movie theater in New York, right after Nitehawk. Great for dates! The movie snacks are downstairs but they also have some food upstairs by the entrance.

    Great atmosphere and a truly unique selection of indie and International films, but beware - the auditoriums are almost flat, with anyone at or above your height completely blocking the view

    This film center's indie charm and intimate screening rooms are the biggest draw but no need to just come here just for the movies! Free wi-fi and their full menu cafe with espresso bar in the main lo

    An arthouse that shows a little more mainstream films. Theater is lovely and the food is fantastic. But, I could hear the train underground every few minutes during the movie. Beware of that!

    Some of the seats have springs poking out! Don't take off your coat / settle in too comfy until you've found a good spot for your behind. Once you have, enjoy the show.

    Always great film selection and well maintained theaters. Cafe selects in the concession stand as you enter but regular movie fare (popcorn, soda, candy) are downstairs.

    A great clean indie theater, so you won't get the talkative jerk person here that often. Only down side : Popcorn is more expensive and smaller, and still use fake butter.

    There are ticket kiosks inside the front door to the right if you're in a hurry. But I like to wait on line at the box office here for the full movie-going experience.

    Great selection of films played here and along with standard movie theater food there is a really great cafe.

    They have the best popcorn out of all of the theaters I've gone to. On top of that they have free refills for their soda pop! The lounge is also a nice place to wait for movies to play.

    When you're looking for something that's not in the regular movie, go here. The rooms are small - so it may get really crowded but always a great crowd who is respectful.

    Whatever little "extras" you need to make your film going experience perfect, can likely be found at Angelika. Snacks, drinks, coffee, beer candy...you name it.

    If you're petite like me, this theatre is not good. Pretty certain the seats become shallower the further back you go which means every seat in front of you will have someone blocking your view

    Despite it's higher prices and smaller theaters, this is an epic place to watch independent movies you can't find in many other venues in NYC.

    These guys play all the indie shit you can't find anywhere else in NYC but theater-wise it's sometimes hard to see past the person in front of you.

    Best selection of indies in the city. Nice, but expensive, cafe/in the lobby. Subway rumble can be a bit distracting at times.

    Shows interesting movies in an unpretentious atmosphere, and you can get iced coffee as a refreshment (!), but bring a sweater... It's FREEZING.

    An iconic, clean, and spacious independent movie theater. Compared to Film Forum, their movies are more accessible.

    They come out with movies before they are widely released and many times they'll have a q&a with the director or stars.

    An indie house staple of Manhattan. It's infamous lobby provides a great waiting room to discuss all things film.

    No stadium seating that I've seen, but the films are the strange, rare, and eclectic. Indie and international movie fans, this is a must-go.

    Make sure you get there early for new releases because the line can get long, and shows sell out fast.

    Good films, but the Film Forum is a better venue for serious film buffs. Here you deal with the rumbling subway in some theaters as well as a less respectful crowd in general.

    Too bad. This theatre has the best indie films, that are not showing anywhere else. But the theatre itself is so gross. Very rundown. Barely an incline in the seats, so I difficult to see over ppl.
