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

This is a great theater, located right in the heart of SoHo. It's really a perfect place for non-SuperFilms. You know, those films that are incredibly well made but not having a billion dollar budget. We saw 'The Invisible Woman' and it was great. It's a lovely theater, it's well laid out and the popcorn is the best I've had... More

My husband and I have gone here many times. Including tonight. I've never gotten more than a cup of tea at the cafe. However, for small, indie films and documentaries--it is a godsend. Although there are other venues in NY, For instance, IFC, Sunshine - many things come heree and almost only to this theater. And great location.

The Angelika was disappointing for me. I've been to this cinema a handful of times but always during the day, so I'm not sure what the nighttime atmosphere is. The entry area is lovely with a nice cafe. The actual screens are what annoys me, as several of them are very long and thin. They also don't have any character... More
