    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

    $7 Tuesdays for students (or for people that were smart enough to hang on to their student IDs). Also-- see a movie in theater #1. It's one of the most beautiful movie theaters you'll sit in.

    One of my favorite film theaters in NYC, it has the friendliest staff and always has a mix of foreign/independent with box office draws. Please support this theater!

    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.

    All shows before noon are $8. Also $8 on Tuesdays for students, all day. Limited selection of films but usually have a few good ones out. I love going on weekend mornings.

    Cute independent theater. Screens are not as big, but the charm (exposed brick walls and unique details) make up for it!

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    The right spot to indulge in 1920s glamour and amazing architecture designed by Louis Jaffe and inspired to Moorish Revival style.

    incredibly uncomfortable theater with airplane-like leg room. if comfort strongly affects your viewing experience, see your movie elsewhere.

    The main auditorium is a converted legitimate house, and is one of the few places in New York to feel like an old-time cinema. See whatever you can here, because every film feels like an event.

    Watch a movie in theatre 1. It's incredibly beautiful and unlike any theatre I've seen before

    This locale was formerly a playhouse. Make sure your movie is in the main theater which is massive and ornate with stadium seating.

    like the ziegfeld, a converted theatre into a movie theatre. catch a film in the main theatre for the cool opera seating.

    Don't sit by the railing on the first row. May seem like a good idea but the bar obstructs your view! 😵

    If you get the e-ticket on your phone you will enter slower than people with real tickets, seat rows are too angled, screens are small, go to another cinema.

    Theater #6 is where Diane Lane and Olivier Martinez got "hot and heavy" during a movie in the film Unfaithful.

    I like this older movie venue although some of the smaller theaters have a seedy feel and I feel like a rat might run over my feet. Doesn't stop me they show good stuff.

    Try seeing a movie in theater 1. Looks like a 50s style opera theater. The other theaters here, not so much.

    Movies you won't find at AMC and regal you'll probably find them here. The over priced concessions are less over priced here.

    This is the worst theatre I've ever been too. It's an archetectural wonder! But you cannot hear the movie. A shithole theatre.
