    Really nice indie cinema. The bigger screens have stadium seating, which gives it a leg up over Angelika.

    Andrew Litvak · March 3
  • Natasha M.

    Have a great deal for a economy size popcorn and drink that is perfect for one person and you don't feel fat after eating a whole bag of popcorn! Also the seats are very comfortable

    This LES indie multiplex, located in a handsome Yiddish vaudeville theater dating back to 1909, offers a well-curated mix of new independent films and goofy midnight classics. Read more

    Cool place but $13.50 a ticket hurts

    Apple cinnamon buttered popcorn ftw

    Elie Bleier · January 24
  • Scott W.

    They need to allot more time between shows. Seating 10 minutes before sucks. I could of sern A Most Violent Year at Lincoln Square at 2:00 pm same showtime. But in my seat 25 minutes prior.

  • Ernst-Jan P.

    Walk across Houston street, stare in awe at the facade, then walk in and enjoy an indie movie. You might run into your favorite movie star, cause the cinema hosts a lot of premieres.
