The theater is located on Houston Street. It's a smaller theater that shows recent films as well as indie films and documentaries. There are about 5 theaters and they are each rather small and usually pretty full so it is a good idea to get there early if you want a good seat. You can sit in the cafe while... More

Angelica serves snack type food in it;s lobby to enjoy while you wait to line up for your movie. The brownies are good, but a bit of a rip off. Then you go down a long escalator to the theaters below ground. The screens are on the small side, as well as the theaters themselves. I over heard a manager... More

It was my first time at Angelika. Maybe I had anticipated it would be much more, but the actual experience was quite ordinary. It is understandable the crowds were huge considering 2 of the 3 movies shown just came out. Unfortunately, the only place left was way in the back, and sometimes, my view of the screen was blocked by... More

What a lovely film center the Angelika is! We went to see the new Michael Keaton film "birdman". It was made somewhat special as the Angelika has a great feel to it...they served a nice cup of tea and hot chocolate and the staff were extremely friendly.If you get chance,pop your head in even if it's to see the decor....

While in NYC, I was able to catch the US release of "Snowpiercer" followed by a Q&A with Director Bong Joon Ho. This type of rich movie going experience appears to be a priority at the Angelika. Add in a reasonably priced pastry and coffee bar and a quality theater milieu and it is a winner with me. Bonus: this... More

Great theatre and excellent documentary on academic institutions and the current state of education. Documentary disturbing for any professors/teachers but a eyeopener - if you haven't already noticed. Yummy popcorn (always a requirement at the movies!).

It's where you can rely on watching a great movie while the subway train rattles the theater slightly, adding to the special effects.

This multi theater carries the best selection of independent, original language films in the city. Location is perfect a few steps away from the heart of Soho.. What a shame the waste of space in the interior hall. The super inflated food, snacks drinks prices-$9 for 2 little bottles of water is day time robbery! Pity as it could be... More

This theatre keeps showing movies that are excellent but not the top 'block-buster' style. After trying to see 'Gloria' at the MOMA which was a sell-out, I went to see it at the Angelika. Sadly the theaters are very small and the whole complex is poorly located due to the periodically rumbled of the nearby NYSubway line. However the Angelika... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
