    “What is this?” shrieks this film’s villain (John Lithgow, bringing on the full, hammy Lithgowness) at an unfortunate moment in the laughably bad The Accountant. You’ll know exactly how he feels. Up to a certain point in Bill Dubuque’s staggeringl...

    The film version of Paula Hawkins’s popular 2015 missing-person novel is taking flak from fans before they’ve even seen it. First, in a major crime against casting, the role of unstable heroine Rachel is played by Emily Blunt (too skinny, too pret...

    “That's how we know we're alive—we're wrong,” a character observes in Philip Roth’s 1997 Pulitzer-winning novel American Pastoral. Based on that piece of insight, actor-turned-director Ewan McGregor’s movie version is very much alive: It’s a remar...

      David Irving is one of Britain’s most shameful sons: a once-respected historian who came to believe (or, at least, claim publicly) that the Holocaust never happened, that it was all a conspiracy to provoke sympathy for the Jewish people. In 1996, ...

    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.
