  • Why did the fans turn late-nite screenings of this cult favorite into an elaborate ritual of dressing-up, singing along, throwing rice and waving cigarette lighters? Well, for one thing, the material inspires affection, given its knowing pastiche ...

    Sure, it's crude, episodic and half the jokes don't work, but Christmas Vacation may be the only modern Christmas comedy which really stands up to repeat viewings. Much of the charm is down to Chase as the perpetually harassed Clark Griswold, whos...

    The Marvel-verse has never shied away from a bit of groovy psychedelia, from the prog-rock cityscapes of Thor to Ant-Man’s voyage into cosmic inner space. But they’ve never gone full down-the-rabbit-hole acid freak-out—until now. There are sequenc...

    There are plenty of smart ideas and bravura visuals in this maudlin, ponderous and slightly ridiculous tale of aliens coming to Earth, adapted from a Ted Chiang short story. But to enjoy the film’s musings on language, time and how much we can eve...

    What’s your pleasure? A light, frothy spy romance or a grim, hard-hitting WWII drama? How about both at once, sometimes in the same scene? Allied sets itself up as a modern answer to Casablanca: the early scenes are set in that city under German o...

    Sphinx, playboy and Hollywood legend Warren Beatty, now 79, has used his fame to direct and produce a clutch of daring movies, all of which would have languished without him. Heaven Can Wait (1978) is the kind of impeccable verbal comedy that was ...

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
