    Hyper small theaters with one, unexpectedly large one upstairs. Great indie selections. Sat next to Maggie Gylenhaal once.

    The most old fashioned cinema that I've ever tried in MYC. Sometimes u can find some small-production films here that u won't see in big cinemas.

    Love this charming little old fashioned theater. Feels like a real neighborhood place - way more so than the one over on 3rd or in union square!

    Originally opened in 1926, the space has in its long history housed everything from vaudeville to off-Broadway. Their gorgeous main theater will often show whatever the biggest seller of the week is. Read more

    The manager should consider quitting or killing him/herself if the company will refuse to have a higher standard for pre-movie ads. SELF PUBLISHED TRUTHER BULL NEEDS TO GTFOH!

    If the movie's not in theater one, turn away. This place is one nice screen and 10 screens slightly larger than a big screen TV. Can't wait for this place to be torn down.

    Not the most modern or comfortable theater, but they do have an amazing roster of movies that are not part of the mainstream. And it’s very clean and the prices are slightly cheaper.
