- Built out of crowd-pleasing elements as durable as a lacquered, sky-high ’80s hairdo, writer-director John Carney’s coming-of-age musical is a synth-drenched joy: a tuneful, deeply personal ode to the impulse that forges a high school rock band. I...Read more

Watching a movie at Nitehawk is a real treat. Each month, they curate an awesome throwback flicks around a specific theme during their Brunch Screening Series, and the selections are always ace. Best of all, you can eat delicious grub and snacks like truffled popcorn—oh, and drink!—while watching the film. Tip: Just make sure to buy tickets in advance and arrive early to snag a good seat—these intimate theaters fill up fast!
Nitehawk is pretty much the only theater in NYC worth going to. Small, chill, not crowded and they play all the movies I'm into. I love going for brunch on the weekends, they have eggs benny over TATER TOTS people! So delish!! The brunch meal also comes with a drink of your choice, INCLUDED. (You can get a bloody mary, mimosa, iced coffee etc. with it.) They have delicious seasoned popcorn, queso, amazing selection of drinks. It's great to sit down and be waited on for everything too. Everything is also reasonably priced. One of the best experiences was going for a film feast here for Friday the 13th. Awesome and you need to get over to Nitehawk already!
I went to see an epic indie slasher movie called Slumber Party Massacre with some buddies here. It didn't disappoint. You're also able to order drinks and snacks from your seat, including your traditional bowl of popcorn (they offer some with truffle oil)! I wouldn't say the mixed drink I ordered was anything special, but the ambiance was so great I didn't even mind. I'll definitely be coming back.
Nitehawk is a nice little indie theater. They show the movies that you wouldn’t be ale to see at the Williamsburg Cinema and feature one-offs, midnight movies, and toons and booze on weekends! The food is mediocre, but it’s nice to have the option to order and enjoy dinner at your seat. At the very least, order some popcorn. It’s not like typical movie popcorn, but more like what homemade popcorn would taste like if you bothered to put good stuff on it. Nice to have drinks delivered to your seat, but there are often drunk patrons in the evening showings. The tiny theaters cause the sound to carry, so if there is a drunk conversation happening in the theater, prepare to hear it all.
SO GREAT. If I had it my way, I'd go here three times a week. Their programming of retro films is amazing, they get really cool speakers...and yeah, the ability to have brews delivered to your table is like my favorite thing ever.
I live very near this theater, and it's my favorite spot in the neighborhood. Nitehawk shows indie flicks other theaters won't, plus serves you food and alcohol while you watch. The ticket prices are affordable, $11, while beers are around $6 and cocktails around $10, then there's snacks like queso and meals like burgers and fish tacos. It's a great date spot, but also somewhere I like to go alone to treat myself on a Sunday night. It feels great to spread out in their comfy chairs and have beers magically appear at your seat while you're watching a classic they've brought back for one night only, like Jurassic Park, or a new tearjerker documentary, like Amy. You MUST try the Nitehawk popcorn—two words: truffle oil.
