    Gorgeous theater. Consistently well-curated crop of movies, new and old. Their luscious buttery popcorn will almost make you forget about the uncomfortable seats. Almost.

    Get the popcorn with butter. Half popcorn, butter in middle, half popcorn, butter on top.

    When they have a film series, it's hit or miss. Still, one of the more immersive theaters. The crowd can be shitty and talkative at times.

    Pretty good film series, pretty bad (and overpriced!) theater. If you can see it at Nitehawk, Angelica, Sunshine, Film Forum...do it there instead.

    Warning: Do not ask for "a cup of water." They charge you $4.75 (for the cup)! Bottled water is $3.50. Nonsense.

    They're generous with the popcorn butter at the concession stand, which is great except the paper bags don't really hold up. Keep a few napkins under there if you don't want your lap buttered.

    BAM was designed by Herts & Tallant, acclaimed theatre architects, in the Neo-Italian Renaissance style. Built in 1907 it is the oldest active arts complex, it was designated a NYC landmark in 1978.

    Cheap tix in beautiful intimate spaces! Original coffered ceilings even in the smaller black boxes. But definitely see as many films in Cinema 3 which still has a beautiful proscenium.

    Avoid going here when you know it will be packed- the seats are very close together and there's no central isle so you have to squeeze past a million people just to go to the bathroom

    If you are short, be warned. Some of the theaters are great, and some of them have bad sight lines. No stadium seating here.

    Buy tickets online for high-demand films at peak times as they often sell out. They have kiosks that make picking up your tickets super-fast. Also, show up early for good seats.
