    While Finding Dory is definitely the kind of visual pleasure we’ve come to expect from Pixar, its storyline doesn’t always reach the heights of inventiveness upon which the gigantic animation studio has built its reputation. The film lacks the psy...

    Sophie, a little orphan girl, is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted, vegetarian giant and is whisked off to an unwelcoming land of oversize cannibals in Roald Dahl’s much-cherished 1982 children’s story The BFG. For this movie ve...

    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...

    Front-loading the best bits, The Secret Life of Pets begins by imagining what the animals on a New York apartment block get up to when their owners shut the door in the morning. A handsome poodle named Leonard switches on the stereo so he can head...

    Sometimes movies feel like fever dreams, fueled by sexy bodies in motion, a pounding electro soundtrack or cinematography that swirls in a revel. This one’s fueled by farts. A preschool-puerile survival movie about a desert-island-stranded beardo ...

    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...

    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...

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.
