    The sort of high-wire, playful and madly enjoyable riff on film-world folklore that only Quentin Tarantino could get away with, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a massively fun shaggy-dog story that blends fact and fiction by inserting made-up cha...

    It’s tough enough being an Uber driver without Hollywood deciding that it’s a job ripe with comedic potential. The mostly awful Stuber takes as its premise the idea that mild-mannered Uber driver Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) will do anything to get a fiv...

    One day destined to be seen as a stealth metaphor for climate-change denial—a brutal Florida hurricane plunges a house and its broken family into disaster—Crawl will, for the time being, serve nicely as a merely okay giant alligator movie. Competi...

    Review by Dave Calhoun There’s a lot that’s mind-bendingly corny about director Danny Boyle and writer Richard Curtis’s Yesterday, a peppy “what-if?” musical comedy that imagines a world in which the Beatles never existed. Your ability to spend t...

    Turns out, Pixar’s sentient toys can still make us cry: Nearly 25 years after their cinematic debut, the sweetly selfless plastic pals return in a fourth Toy Story, one charged by the animated series’ thematic essence of finding purpose in being u...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf “I didn’t think I would have to save the world this summer,” says a near-terrified Peter Parker (Tom Holland, still charmingly dorky in an Anton Yelchin vein) near the front end of Spider-Man: Far from Home. Many viewers...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf Something is off about this defiantly unmagical remake of The Lion King, a film that is both photorealistic—down to every artfully crafted lens flare and whisker on Simba’s chin—and the furthest thing from real. It’ll ei...

Really cool movie experience. Helps reset expectations of a theater as service oriented. Full bar and menu movie seating in discrete cubbies. Bar and restaurant with private rooms up the escalator. Friendly and energetic staff. Expensive tickets, sell out well in advance. Best to buy before online.


iPic takes the movie going experience to an entirely new level. It's basically your one stop shop for a date night. You have a selection of seating options. I went with a friend and we got a 'pod'. The 'pod' comes with a little table, reclining chairs, blankets and pillows. In the theater you have popcorn served seat side throughout the movie. You also have waitstaff that you order your drinks and meal from your seat. 


As most things go in NY I was expecting this new experience to be severely over priced. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Although your movie ticket is more expensive than you're used to paying, the drinks and food were moderately priced. 


The complex also has a full service bar and restaurant up stairs. I even saw a sign for the rooftop lounge coming soon. It's literally a one stop shop for food, drink and entertainment. If you're not into the movies just go inside to check out the space. It has a great vibe and is unlike most places downtown. Check it out. 


My only critic would be that they seem to still be working out the flow during the movie. The bright blue call buttons to usher your waiter over were distracting. It's also a bit distracting to have people walking around and talking to others during a movie. I'm sure they will work out how best to do this, but for now it seems a bit distracting.
