People tend to check in during these times:
NYC's state-of-the-art downtown cinema for the best in independent, foreign, documentary and classic films.
Good to see movies you can't find anywhere else
Small but the movies they host are larger than life. Go and expand your heart, mind & heart
The best Indy theater around. Private bathrooms in the second floor lounge can't be beat.
Great selection of films.
Great theatre. Expensive ($15 tix for nonmembers) but you're supporting awesome independent films that aren't shown many other places. Conveniently right next to the ACE.
The intro (don't talk, don't use your phone) is frustratingly long.
Theater five is tiny! Comfy though.
An NYC legend. A fantastic independent theater that shows lots of great documentaries and has delicious popcorn with real butter
The kind of place you go to with no plan. Just watch a movie and have fun!
One of the best theaters in NYC, guaranteed to have something good playing.
The concession bar workers really hate their lives so have your order ready and a backup in case they don't have it
Saw the original mad max there. Staff is nice and chair are very comfortable.
Lots of great director talks post screening
Oscar nominated shorts run here
Finally got to go to the IFC with my bestie! Totally coming back next month for more movies! Place is SOOO comfortable and clean. Bathroom is extremely clean which is a bonus! I wanna go back! :3
Great documentaries here this month (April 2015). Seymour, salad days, misery loves comedy
Saw the Oscar nominated animated shorts. Good date idea.
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.
Indie film institution. Also note: I used to crave the drowned-in-butter popcorn typical of movie theaters, now I only dream of IFC's organic stuff.
The flicks! Famous actors and directors are often here. They have fab midnite movies and a monthly queer film series.
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.
Smaller budget films. Cozy space to see a film though. Don't plan to hang out here though, there's no space for that.
Some of the best movies in the city, in the worst seats but they have real butter!
One of the few Indie movie theaters in Manhattan, you'll find the hard-to-find films being shown here. Tickets can be reserved online.
Excellent and unique movies in a very nice theater.
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
Very dark inside.
The seats here are amazing. So comfortable.
Really good selection of movies and comfortable sits! FTW
Each theater is super small so get there early if you want to get a good seat.
Great place - comfy seats, clean, nice staff, reasonable prices. Oh and good films!
Friendly staffs! The small theatre 5 is amazing!
lines form quick for big films. make sure you arrive early.
love this place with all the movie options!
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.
Home to the best popcorn that has ever graced a movie theater.
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.
Be sure to watch a classic movie at midnight on a weekend.
Basically IFC Center is a film-buff's heaven on earth. Comfy seating, great quality projection, loud sound, and excellent selection of films.
Mistaken for Strangers was so funny and clever. Loved it.
Like having an ongoing film festival right in the neighborhood.
The theatre is quite small
I'm here at least once a year for the short films.
Oscar nominated shorts: documentary
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.
The new bathroom is sort of baller.
Make sure you bring a sweater in case you sit under one of the air vents...
