This cinema is homey and fun. Upstairs is a lively waiting area and cafe. Very relaxing. Downstairs are cozy screening rooms. Only the best indie and intl movies are shown. Love it.

Angelika is a New York City classic cinema. They offer a solid variety of independent and more mainstream films, and they keep ticket prices reasonable. Easy to get to by subway. I've seen many memorable films here.

The selection of films was good, horrible popcorn and the layout of the screen I was in was terrible. It compromised the view significantly!

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

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.
