Angelika Film Center
When it opened in 1989, the Angelika immediately became a player in the then-booming Amerindie scene, and the six-screen cinema still puts the emphasis on edgier fare, both domestic and foreign.

    Built out of crowd-pleasing elements as durable as a lacquered, sky-high ’80s hairdo, writer-director John Carney’s coming-of-age musical is a synth-drenched joy: a tuneful, deeply personal ode to the impulse that forges a high school rock band. I...

    Ralph Fiennes follows his devilishly comic performances in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Hail, Caesar! with an equally hilarious turn in this Italian set, playful and highly strung melodrama from Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love). The film is a remake of...

By far my favorite movie theather in the city. The play the best selection of films, mostly independent, but the kind that get recognize at awards. They have tons of cool events and premieres, including Q&As with actors and directors. Their cafe has super yummy bites and treats, and they serve the BEST popcorn ever - zero traces of butter, just pure white popcorn deliciousness (you can add butter yourself of course).


I make it a point to come here at least once every couple of weeks. It's a landmark and the crowd is super interesting - you can tell they really come to watch the films, not just for movie night.

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!
