Jerry Kleiner’s wildly tacky aesthetic feels so at home among the low-culture grandeur of a movie theater that a multicolored Fiat 500 in the middle of a bar practically goes unnoticed. Add 20 minutes to your movie date, and you can score housemade chips with onion dip and a martini for about the same price as they’ll gouge you for a Diet Coke and Twizzlers at the concession stand below.
