  • Why did the fans turn late-nite screenings of this cult favorite into an elaborate ritual of dressing-up, singing along, throwing rice and waving cigarette lighters? Well, for one thing, the material inspires affection, given its knowing pastiche ...

    Too much ambition can be a dangerous thing. The previous Star Trek movie, 2013’s sprawling Into Darkness, was packed with it: new worlds, violent consequences and hefty emotional moments. A little unfairly, it was voted the worst Trek movie ever b...

    Joanna Lumley is the best thing about this funny (but disappointingly not hilarious) Ab Fab comeback. So thank the fashion gods for the injections of Botox and the truckloads of Stoli-Bolly cocktails keeping Patsy permanently pickled: She’s so wel...

    The all-female reboot of Ghostbusters is here—jacked up, subversive and often very funny—and before any fanboys make the leap from vicious trailer criticism to the movie itself, let’s get real about the 1984 original: It’s breezy, it’s blessed wit...

    Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass prompted widespread surprise with their decision to return to the Bourne series, despite the neat closure of their trilogy capper, 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Surely, we assumed, they must have a great reas...

    Although Bad Moms was written and directed by the creators of the uneven Hangover trilogy (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore), any hopes that it will play out as an estrogen-charged, drugs-and-booze-fueled farce are quickly squashed. Instead of all-nighte...

    Aa a morose almost-comedy that flirts with romantic themes and then abandons them, Woody Allen’s latest period piece gives us a young Jewish man, Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg, fairly endearing as the Allen stand-in), who’s been burned by love. He escape...

This is my new favorite movie theater in NYC! Bow-Tie Chelsea is the perfect mix of big commercial theater with giant popcorn and way too big seats and the indie theater with your favorite limited release films.  The theater was incredibly clean and the staff was really friendly- and the popcorn was some of the best movie popcorn I've ever had (which, of course, is the most important reason to choose a movie theater).

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
