- The first Fantastic Beasts had a lot of heavy lifting to do. It needed to establish a world connected to the Harry Potter universe, but also one that was self-contained. It had to introduce several busloads of new characters and kick off a story c...Read more
- It would seem a prerequisite, but the people rebooting today’s Halloween—journeyman indie director David Gordon Green and his co-screenwriter Danny McBride—really love the OG Halloween. (When Rob Zombie tried doing his remake in 2007, you weren’t ...Read more
- Calling the new A Star Is Born a “valentine” from its star, Lady Gaga, to her fans sounds a bit coy and delicate, so let’s call it what it really is: a hot French kiss (with full-on tongue), filled with passion, tears and a staggering amount of ...Read more
- There’s a reason why The Nutcracker is almost always performed as a ballet. More Terry Gilliam than Walt Disney, E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original fairy tale is a dark story about a young girl, a dashing nutcracker soldier, some transformative magic and ...Read more
- The afterlife has rarely been quiet for Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who died young in 1991 after a flurry of creativity. First came Wayne’s World, with Mike Myers head-banging to Queen’s 1975 hit Bohemian Rhapsody. Then came a massive tribut...Read more
- Operation Neptune is in full effect as Allied troops storm the beaches of Normandy. Overhead, the U.S. is flying air support. One misfit team, led by a grizzled commander (Wyatt Russell), is tasked with destroying a radio transmitter located at a ...Read more

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.
