The New York Daily News did a little pre-summer movie theater analysis, and luckily the outcomes were in our favor. Below is what they had to say:
BEST KEPT SECRET: CITY CINEMAS VILLAGE EAST, THEATER #1
The first screening room in this landmark building still houses pieces of its Yiddish theater past. Check out the Star of David and the elegant chandelier adorning the ceiling, as well as its grand balcony. The recently renovated auditorium seats 370 in refurbished chairs, and there’s new carpeting. 181 Second Ave., atE. 12th St. (212-529-6998).
ANGELIKA FILM CENTER
This cool corner independent theater’s got a cafe that’s almost good enough for a trip of its own. The focus is on items made in the city, so there’s a full espresso bar serving Puerto Rican beans, Sedutto ice cream shakes and sandwiches, some organic, from Karen’s on LaGuardia Place.
