    Love this place! They show a consistently great selection of new independent and classic movies. I took out a one year membership and haven't regretted it in the least.

    still no student deal, but they take cash now: 14 bucks a pop.

    Treat yourself to the basic $75 annual membership, if you see one movie a month it pays for itself. Better yet go weekly to try to avoid the human race.

    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

    A NYC institution showing amazing gems. One of the few places in town where you can still feel the creativity of old New York.

    This theater has the best popcorn in NYC. They don't offer butter but all it needs is sea salt provided at the counter.
