Nitehawk is a nice little indie theater. They show the movies that you wouldn’t be ale to see at the Williamsburg Cinema and feature one-offs, midnight movies, and toons and booze on weekends! The food is mediocre, but it’s nice to have the option to order and enjoy dinner at your seat. At the very least, order some popcorn. It’s not like typical movie popcorn, but more like what homemade popcorn would taste like if you bothered to put good stuff on it. Nice to have drinks delivered to your seat, but there are often drunk patrons in the evening showings. The tiny theaters cause the sound to carry, so if there is a drunk conversation happening in the theater, prepare to hear it all.
SO GREAT. If I had it my way, I'd go here three times a week. Their programming of retro films is amazing, they get really cool speakers...and yeah, the ability to have brews delivered to your table is like my favorite thing ever.
I live very near this theater, and it's my favorite spot in the neighborhood. Nitehawk shows indie flicks other theaters won't, plus serves you food and alcohol while you watch. The ticket prices are affordable, $11, while beers are around $6 and cocktails around $10, then there's snacks like queso and meals like burgers and fish tacos. It's a great date spot, but also somewhere I like to go alone to treat myself on a Sunday night. It feels great to spread out in their comfy chairs and have beers magically appear at your seat while you're watching a classic they've brought back for one night only, like Jurassic Park, or a new tearjerker documentary, like Amy. You MUST try the Nitehawk popcorn—two words: truffle oil.
