It's a second-run theater that shows art-house flicks and independent documentaries. A retro-vintage throwback that feels as new and shiny as a recently built suburban multiplex. A luxurious movie palace that sits on the kind of neighborhood corner usually reserved for convenience stores or walk-in pizza joints. The Riverview fills so many roles...
For far too long, Miami's moviegoers have had to endure a series of horrifying obstacles to see the latest incarnation of Iron Man. Terrifying teenage punks eyeing you from the snack bar. Being forced to watch the antics of Adam Sandler while totally sober. Pushing pregnant women and the elderly aside to avoid a front-row, eyeball-assaulting sea...
When you're hankering to go to the movies but don't want to deal with everything that sucks with going to the movies — cost, kids hollering, cell phones ringing — go to the Classic Gateway Theatre. In an era of iPhones and Netflix, this historic theater is delightfully vintage. It opened in 1951, and in many ways it feels like you've traveled ba...
The Avon has been showing world-class cinema for 75 years. For most of its existence, it has been an 'art house,' specializing in foreign and independent films. From Last Tango In Paris to Midnight In Paris, from Marty to Barbara, it has seared thousands of indelible cinematic images into our collective consciousness. The elegant single-screen e...
Why fly coach when first-class seats are up for grabs? The experience of going to the movies just got an upgrade, thanks to the developers behind the Mercantile Exchange (MX) District -- downtown's newest dining and entertainment venue. MX Movies, located in the renovated MX building, comes fully equipped with luxury seating, an in-seat ordering...
Considering this one-screen indie theater is run by four dudes with day jobs, it would be impressive if Texas Theatre's programming simply remained consistent. It would be nice if the bar were just a friendly place to drink or if you could occasionally see a less-conventional act performed there, like a comedy or DJ set. But for Aviation Cinemas...
Edwards Houston Marq*E Stadium 23 & IMAX has an unfair advantage over other multiplex movie theaters in that there are lots of before/after screening options for moviegoers. A variety of restaurants and shops crowd the plaza just outside its doors. But the real draw here is film choice. With 23 screens, Marq*E offers a full slate of movies. Fami...
A consistently top-drawer slate of current art-house films, a charming concession stand, friendly ushers, and an intermittent “classic film series” that offers the opportunity to see the old movies your grandparents loved. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is playing August 7th.
Outside the city, new multiplexes rise amid seas of concrete, preferably located near a freeway off-ramp. But in congested Seattle, where the old single-screen movie palaces are too large and inefficient to run profitably (see the Neptune and the Egyptian’s sad demise), the trick is to repurpose an existing structure. That’s what Sundance Cinema...
Ticket prices to first-run films can touch $40 after fees if you want the IMAX/RealD/3D experience, which is why Williamsburg Cinemas' Tuesday and Thursday $8 ticket prices—check the website for specifics—have made the movie house a destination since it opened last year. The seven-screen cinema is owned by Harvey Elgart, who also owns Cobble Hil...
