    With one obvious exception, toy stories don’t have the luckiest big-screen pedigree: The results are often either sugary cartoons for undemanding kids or noisy blockbusters for brain-dead teens. If the producers of The LEGO Movie had taken either ...

    The clue is in the title: The second Fifty Shades film, Fifty Shades Darker, is aiming for the shadows. It wants to be a thriller, where the erotic risk of Christian Grey’s sex dungeon is upstaged by actual danger (of the non S&M variety) for love...

    The young writer-director Damien Chazelle has followed his Oscar-winning drama Whiplash with another entirely novel film steeped in the world of music. His soaring, romantic, extremely stylish and endlessly inventive La La Land is that rare beast:...

    When Martin Scorsese puts away his strutting cocks—his raging bulls, goodfellas and Wall Street wolves—the results can be astounding. This quieter, lesser-seen director is the one who gave us The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), the exquisite per...

    The kingdom in question is not the one within the British Isles, but Botswana—or Bechuanaland, as it was known in the years when crown prince Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) came to London to study, falling unexpectedly in love with shopkeeper's dau...

    The first movie had Keanu Reeves’s stoic man of action taking on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog—a vengeance with a vicious edge. No, they haven’t come for his cat this time, but the taciturn ex-assassin is still prone to murderous rages. ...

    One major misjudgment can sink an entire film. Lion is based on the true story of Saroo Brierley (played as a child by Sunny Pawer, then as an adult by Dev Patel), an Indian boy who stepped onto the wrong train at age five, was carried half way ac...

    As inspiring as rockets’ red glare heading into space, this huge-hearted crowd-pleaser has a sophisticated idea running through it: By and large, busy scientists don’t have time for racism or sexism. The idea proved true in reality at Virginia’s L...

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
