    Fantastic selection of Indie movies. Every year they have Oscar nominees for The animated, live-action, and documentary shorts. They also host Q&A sessions with directors and actors sometimes.

    Awesome curation. Go see a Q&A and ask a famous person a silly question. Go upstairs and see what vintage film posters are on display

    Some more obscure indies than at other nyc theaters. Membership is a good value if you like going to midnight classics and go often enough to make the free popcorn per visit worth it.

    Always has the movies you should see. Every February they host the Oscar nominated animated shorts! While you can watch them online, nothing beats seeing them on the big screen.

    One of my favorite movie theaters, does a lot of cool screenings many of which with the director doing a Q&A afterwards. If you can't go out, many of their films are streaming simultaneously on VOD

    This is where shadowcast was invented and Rocky Horror Picture Show became a cult phenomenon. If you are lucky, you can still catch a shadowcast of Ghostbusters performed by the Minions of Gozer.

    Friday and saturday midnight screenings feature popular classics (e.g. Indiana Jones, etc.). Even if you watched it on TV, watch it again on the big screen, because it will be better. Trust me.

    It was the theater that originated the Rocky Horror midnight screenings, when it was the Waverly Theater. Sadly, it hosts those no longer, but is still a great place for independent film.

    See the newest independent movies and weekly showings of classic cinema at IFC. Short films screen before every movie, and cult festivals often buy time here.
