    Maybe my favorite theater in NYC. The food is banging and I love how they have specials inspired by the movies they show. Buy tickets ahead of time; they often sell out

    Date Night Is...April 29, 2013
    The best movie theatre in the city for a Date Night. Where else can you enjoy a tasty cocktail and gourmet food in the middle of a show? If the show is sold out, stop by the bar for snacks & drinks.

    Dinner? Movie? or a show? Stop here first, grab some grub, watch a cool indie flick, then see a show at nearby Music Hall of Williamsburg. Beer! Pork Buns! Popcorn! oh my!

    What's not to love about excellent movies, food, and drinks all at the same place? Also a fan of the pre movie reel, a selection of clips related to actors and themes of the movie you're about to see

    The non-mainstream films, intimate viewing rooms and extensive options of beer, wine & spirits guarantee a kickass experience, especially if you prefer solo viewing.

    Have the popcorn con queso and get there at least 30 mins before your film starts - pre-film shorts are well curated (and you want to snag a good seat). I may never go back to a regular cinema again

    Points for the menu! The Queso is SO good (add guacamole), enjoyed w/The Driver (rum & ginger beer). My friend said her kale salad (apples, raisins, crispy cheddar, maple vinaigrette) was delish too.

    Awesome old movie theater. Seats have little tables and you can order food (usually themed to the movie, how cute) and drinks. Tickets sell out, so buy in advance.

    I'll be a little honest: I was very surprised how good the food is here. The popcorn alone is the best I've ever had, as well as the tater tots (yes, really). This place is the truth.

    Movie theater with small tables in between chairs to hold beer and cocktails, hamburgers, fish tacos, and popcorn dressed up with Cotija cheese, lime and cilantro. Discreet service during the movie.

    Good beer, good food, eating during a movie, and usually a quiet audience make this a favorite. Independent/more interesting films are often shown. It's also just a nifty place.

    Quaintest way to dine and drink while watching a film. Food ordering feels natural with the viewing experience. Pre-film shorts and ads here are a refreshingly tasteful contrast from chain theaters.

    Make sure u upstairs ~15-20 before showtime so U can snag preferred seats and order food/drinks before the film starts. The truffle popcorn is addictive!!

    The Queso nachos is great: loaded with chorizo, sliced jalapenos, and guacamole. They also have Magners on tap. Get there early if you want your whole group to sit together!

    Get here early. Not only because of limited seats, but the old clips they show before the film are always great and relevant to the film you're about to see.

    Drink booze and eat grub (for much cheaper than at the movie theater)! They play a lot of annoying hipster-crap-movies but every now and then they actually normal blockbusters.

    ALWAYS buy your tickets from home, online several hours before your show time starts. Otherwise, there is about a 99% chance it will be sold out by the time you get here.
