    Upstairs Cinema 1 is shallow and very wide. But as noted above, the seats suck! But as one of the last standing theaters in the neighborhood, I'd hate to see it go the way of many others -- closed.

    The theater has been upgraded with reclining seats, fancy bathrooms and concessions. Its not your granny's theater anymore! Makes for a nice theater going experience.

    Such an uncomfortable movie theatre. No room to even move your legs, let alone get in a comfortable position. The screen is so small and there's no organized system to get into the theatre...

    This place is terrible. A few seats even have caution tape on them. Horrible space and horrible people come to talk during movies while the ushers stand by and do nothing. Totally disappointed.

    I do not like the reserved seating policy. Sometimes you may want to sit in another seat, row etc. and you can't just take another empty seat. Get rid of the reserved seating.

    The type of theatre in need of upgrades but would be sad if there were any. A classic cramped NYC apt feel that befits opening nights for Woody Allen films. Stay true city cinemas 1, 2 & 3.

    Get a bite to eat before or after at Kurant around the corner on 58th and 2nd. Great wine list, happy hour, and burger

    ...Was told even if there were tickets available if the system says sold out (even if its not) they can't sell me the tickets. So due to a glitch I can get tickets to what I want to see. So stupid!!!

    Small theater. Currently undergoing renovation, which is much needed! Staff is ultra friendly and service is impeccable!

    Tried to get tickets to something I was really looking forward to seeing. Came early and was told it was sold out that I should have gotten them online. DUH! I tried for days and couldn't.

    Definitely needs to be updated. However, I can't remember the last time I've encountered friendly staff in a movie theater in NYC.

    Small screen and awkward aisles but generous leg room in theatre #3. Downstairs and to thee right, I think it's 3.

    This theater isn't busy & it's quiet. Their reclining seats are a huge bonus! 😀

    This place is so gross but they play good movies so you gotta do what you gotta do. Seats are so nasty I don't even want to take off my coat.

    Nice retro movie house. I was there for the first time since "The Exorcist" 40 years ago. It hasn't changed.

    This theater is a dump. You'd be better off seeing a movie anywhere else.

    Planning on sneaking in? You can't. Employees block the entries after a movie finishes. :(
