    Easily the best revival theater in NYC. A great assortment of classics, art house, indie, and documentary. A staple of the NYC film community.

    My husband and I could watch movies all day here. The membership is definitely worth it. They have great 2-for-1 movies as well. Beware the popcorn is made with peanut oil which I'm allergic to.

    This legendary theater on West Houston has legendarily cramped seating that forces you to pay attention to the screen. It's real strength is showing films of yesteryear, many themed together. Read more
