    Imagine Maggie Smith’s cantankerous dowager in Downton Abbey as a bag lady—she's still lording it over everyone, but now she's dressed in a filthy men’s coat with tape patching up the rips and unsightly brown smears down the back. Meet Miss Sheph...

    Room is a fitting title for director Lenny Abrahamson’s potent and sensitive film about two characters who spend precious years of their lives trapped in one. But Room is also cruel shorthand for a story about two characters who aren’t afforded an...

Meh, great movie selection but the actual theater is pretty rinky dink and overpriced.

Seating sucks (uncomfortable so don't bother coming here for a long movie), they're all one level so you're screwed if whoever is in front of you is taller.  

Bathrooms are gross, bring some Lysol.. Or don't, if you dare.

The Angelika is the perfect place to bring your family, S.O., or really anybody that you're trying prove your coolness to.  They show great films, ranging from major releases to indie, under-the-radar movies - if you're a film buff, you're guaranteed to find future Oscar-nominated films here. One of my main gripes about visiting the Angelika is that there isn't a great restaurant close-by to eat at beforehand/afterwards, but the Angelika solved that for me by its cafe inside. Forget seeing a movie with traditional candy - this girl is buying a sandwich and eating in the theater. (Politely, of course.)


NYC institution!  One of the best movie theaters in the country.  Easily the best snack bar in movie theater history.  Only flaw?  The MTA's added subway soundtrack which adds a certain unwanted scoring to the film every time an underground train passes the theater.

A Soho landmark for nearly 30 years, this theater is simply one of the best to go see indie-movies hard to find anywhere else. The theaters are expansive with decent legroom. The concession stands, which feature cappuchino and artisanal bottled waters ain't cheap, but not a real problem, obvs. Great place for movie-lovers with sophisticated tastes!
