    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...

    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...

    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...

    David F. Sandberg’s half-clever horror debut is based on a 2013 short of the same name—you can check it out on YouTube if you’d like a taste. But before you do, brace yourself for two things: First, make sure you have a high-wattage lamp handy. (Y...

This is a small, cozy theater with really comfortable seats. I'm a big fan of going to movies on my own, so this really fit the bill, but it's also great for dates. Also, it's close to a lot of bars and restaurants, so it's very easy to make dinner and a movie out of it.

An easy walk for anyone that lives in Williamsburg or Greenpoint.  Clean and convenient, this movie theater is the only option in town for blockbuster movies.  The theaters are small, so plan on arriving early so you're not stuck up front.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays they have $8 tickets.  For a unique movie expirience head over to Nitehawk Cinemas, but if you just want to catch the latest action flick or comedy Williamsburg Cinemas is the theater you want.  It is also very close to some fun bars (Rye, Iona, Full Circle) and restaurants (Snacky, Bozu, M Shanghai) so it is a great movie date spot.
