    For an animated movie that’s ostensibly about where babies come from (they’re delivered by air, of course), Storks is targeted at the youngest of viewers: chirpers who won’t mind gobbling down a little pre-digested Inside Out or The Lion King—this...

    Clever old Bridget (Renée Zellweger). There’s been a hell of a lot criticism of her for crimes against feminism, but here she is, triumphantly returning in her forties, funnier, wittier, and—perhaps most importantly—happier with herself. And unlik...

    The opening moments of Sully, a stirring paean to a great day of ultra-coordinated NYC heroism, are so frightening, it’s amazing that the scene is about to play in multiplexes around the world. In the cockpit of his US Airways jet, Chesley “Sully”...

    Ah, Texas: manly men, rusty trucks, desert skies, dusty streets, petty crime, giant hats and rampant gun ownership. This old-fashioned but enjoyable heist thriller rounds up all the creakiest cliches about America’s largest state into one handy pa...

    If you wanted to point to the perfect Hollywood Western—not necessarily the most complex or delicately shaded, but tallest in the saddle—John Sturges’s iconic 1960 oater would be hard to outgun. It sweeps you up in manly camaraderie, has a killer ...

Massive chain theaters ain't got nuthin on Cobble Hill Cinemas. This place has the charm of a small, indie theater but with a fantastic viewing experience.  That means the sound and picture quality are immaculate, as are the people who frequent this theater.  They're consistently respectful and won't spoil a film by texting!


An added bonus: movies on Tuesdays and Thursdays (all day) and the first showing of the day everyday are only $8.

Who says old school New Brooklyn is dead? This theater, a neighborhood mainstay for 50 years, has got that Brooklyn funk down cold, from the concession stands to the airbrush murals of movie icons both inside and outside. The theaters tend to be small because they've got so many of them packed into a relatively small building. This means that unless you don't mind craning your neck in a front row seat on a weekend night, you need to get their early, especially for a new release. But the experience of watching first-run movies in an intimate setting is part of the charm. And if you're a freelancer working at home looking for a time-suck, there are incredible matinee discounts on the weekdays; the weekend matinees are cheap too. It's totally family friendly with special showings of movies for kids.
