    Not only expert homage for the fans but a first-rate, energized piece of mega-Hollywood adventure, the hugely anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens stirs more to life than just the Force. The rollicking, space-opera spirit of George Lucas’s ori...

    The bearded-hipster image of Brooklyn has gone so global, it’s almost miraculous that a film would succeed in making the borough seem exotic again—by reaching back to its blue-collar Dodgers-loving past. That’s one of the many feats of Irish direc...

    Michael Moore, still the baseball-hatted icon of lefty discontent (if looking schlumpier 26 years after Roger & Me), delivers his latest documentary provocation, which refreshingly turns out to be one of his more hopeful and celebratory efforts. O...

    No matter how Quentin Tarantino arms his characters—with katana swords (Kill Bill), shotguns (Pulp Fiction) or baseball bats (Inglourious Basterds)—their chief weapons are words. That’s just how this writer-director rolls, and even as The Hateful ...

    After the playful, urban and contemporary vibe of Birdman, this bleak 1820s-set Western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like Babel and 21 Grams. Based on a 2002 Michael Punke n...

This chain theater has all the heart of an indie theater:

-Fantastic customer service: your chronically late friends won’t make you miss the trailers again.  The ticket taker will gladly hold onto their ticket and let them in when they arrive so you can go in.
-Comfortable seating: wide leather seats with armrests that pull up
-Assigned seating: when you purchase your tix you pick exactly which comfy leather seats you want
-Excellent coffee
-Alternative programming like midnight classics
-All shows before noon are $8
