    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:...

    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...

    A horror film with the power to put a rascally grin on the face of that great genre subverter John Carpenter (They Live), Get Out has more fun playing with half-buried racial tensions than with scaring us to death. To some, that will come as the s...

I love that this small theater still has the retro 90s animations introductions at the beginning that tell you to "silence your pagers" along with "refraining from talking during the movie." Where else are you reminded of beeping pagers in 2016? It's great, it gets the point across, they didn't have to change anything and applaud that they didn't. I enjoy the indies that come through here and its access to fun eateries in the area. Fun for a night out.

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.
