Great indie films

For film lovers in New York, it's always worth checking what is on the screens here. So many films that might otherwise not be seen are programmed here. Love this place!

Travelling alone I wanted to experience a foreign film theater and found this one perfect- lovely deli where you could wait with a coffee prior to entering your theater- clean, lots of staff, senior and student pricing, and easy metro access off Houston Street.

A rainy day in New York resulted in us going here - what an unexpected surprise! Not your "doing the rounds" films which was delightful. We had some really fascinating independent ones to choose from. Comfortable seats; cinema not packed out and a pleasant cafe.

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.

I love coming to the Angelika. It is pricey for a film $14.50 but the films they have here you might not see in a normal movie theater. It has all the independents. The prices at the concession stand are also pricey (come on $6.50 for a small popcorn). My suggestion, eat after the film is over. Sit back in... More

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

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.
