    David O. Russell’s wacky screwball spin on the rags-to-riches biopic opens with the title: "Inspired by stories of brave women." He could just as easily have borrowed the opening line from his last film, American Hustle: "Some of this actually hap...

Massive chain theaters ain't got nuthin on Cobble Hill Cinemas. This place has the charm of a small, indie theater but with a fantastic viewing experience.  That means the sound and picture quality are immaculate, as are the people who frequent this theater.  They're consistently respectful and won't spoil a film by texting!


An added bonus: movies on Tuesdays and Thursdays (all day) and the first showing of the day everyday are only $8.

Who says old school New Brooklyn is dead? This theater, a neighborhood mainstay for 50 years, has got that Brooklyn funk down cold, from the concession stands to the airbrush murals of movie icons both inside and outside. The theaters tend to be small because they've got so many of them packed into a relatively small building. This means that unless you don't mind craning your neck in a front row seat on a weekend night, you need to get their early, especially for a new release. But the experience of watching first-run movies in an intimate setting is part of the charm. And if you're a freelancer working at home looking for a time-suck, there are incredible matinee discounts on the weekdays; the weekend matinees are cheap too. It's totally family friendly with special showings of movies for kids.
