Not too big, not too small, Williamsburg Cinema is kind of perfect for its location. It has all the latest movies, and sometimes more indie flicks. The prices aren't too crazy, and the lines aren't too long. If you get there late you might have to sit in the front, but at least its not sold out! The chairs are pretty comfy! A nice time!

If you're looking for a local theater with no bells and whistles, this is your spot. Tickets will run around $12, much better than the $17 price tag that you'll find in Manhattan.


This theater is a perfect combination of commercial chain and indie hideaway.  You don't have to buy your tickets in advance, but it does help to arrive early so you're not stuck in a seat where you can barely see the screen.  Everything is pretty reasonably priced, and the $8 ticket deals are a bargain on Tuesday and Thursday screenings.  If you can, avoid 3-D screenings here.  Because of the size of the theater and the sometimes strangely placed seating, watching a 3-D film is a lot more taxing than it should be.

This is a small, cozy theater with really comfortable seats. I'm a big fan of going to movies on my own, so this really fit the bill, but it's also great for dates. Also, it's close to a lot of bars and restaurants, so it's very easy to make dinner and a movie out of it.

An easy walk for anyone that lives in Williamsburg or Greenpoint.  Clean and convenient, this movie theater is the only option in town for blockbuster movies.  The theaters are small, so plan on arriving early so you're not stuck up front.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays they have $8 tickets.  For a unique movie expirience head over to Nitehawk Cinemas, but if you just want to catch the latest action flick or comedy Williamsburg Cinemas is the theater you want.  It is also very close to some fun bars (Rye, Iona, Full Circle) and restaurants (Snacky, Bozu, M Shanghai) so it is a great movie date spot.
