When you arrive at the Alamo, you ride the escalator of a shockingly clean mall—the City Point shopping center—up to the fourth floor. Right from the start, you're in a place that caters to those who geek out about all things cinema. That crazy red-and-orange carpet from The Shining lines the floor (a franchise signature). There's an art installation of King Kong that you can pose behind, hugging the spire of the Empire State Building. Moving further in, there's a cocktail bar, the House of Wax. But the theaters themselves are the most impressive, boasting rumbling sound and crystal-clear picture. All seven of them sport Alamo's patented dine-in service: pen-and-paper ordering and delivery by a "ninja-quiet staff." The menu includes steak sandwiches, jerk chicken and one necessary holdover from Austin: queso and chips.

    A hush comes over a New York City Chinese restaurant during the most magical moment of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. It’s a scene that could have come from director Marielle Heller’s previous film, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, in which she fou...

    Rarely does a movie combine cinematic fireworks and social commentary as mischievously as Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite does. It’s a slick home-invasion drama that mirrors the masks worn by its characters: The film is polite until it dro...
