    Seen Hateful Eight on 70mm it was unique experience. Not crowded at all and very laid back.

    Comfortable seats, but I think the kiosks were originally programmed on an Apple IIe.

    massive old school style theatre upstairs. It's like seeing a movie in an opera house
  • Savannah P.
    incredibly uncomfortable theater with airplane-like leg room. if comfort strongly affects your viewing experience, see your movie elsewhere.

    Classic village spot for mainstream and the occasional art house film.
  • Daniele P.
    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.

    Good theater for independent and foreign films. Managed to catch The Last: Naruto The Movie here.

    Small but perfect cinema house. Keep an eye out for anime showcases.

    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

    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!

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

    Great theater, but bring ya own snacks! Not much (actually, nothing) for a vegan.

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

    Looks a little shady on the outside but fabulous on the inside. It's very quiet, no obnoxiousness!

    Theater 5 is a freezer. Literally. Everybody talked about it before during and AFTER the movie even in the bathroom stalls!

    Come on a Tuesday and pay $7 as a student- plus free popcorn :)

    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!

    Be sure to check out auditorium 1 for a wonderful surprise

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    $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.

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

    Watched film in auditorium #5. Won't be doing that again! Small screen, uncomfortable seats, and one couple talking to each other while the women behind talked to the screen.

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

    Auditorium 5 is a lot less "auditorium" and a lot more "big screen TV"

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

    The theaters downstairs are all super small. It should not be $13

    The popcorn is actually very good. Do not put the fake butter on it.

    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.

    Concessions are way cheap. Medium popcorn and small soda = $5.50!

    Order your tickets in advance on their website or come at least an hour early for rush tickets.

    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 film in Auditorium 1 upstairs - it's one of the most beautiful theaters I've ever been in.
