BAM is a world-class cultural venue that offers a constant feast of performing arts events: modern dance, new music, opera, avant garde and classic theater. It also has four of the most comfortable cinemas in the city.

I've only been to BAM Rose Cinemas, which offers BAMcinématek, an extensive collection of movies, documentaries, and foreign-language films.

We've been to BAM many times, and never failed to have a wonderful time. It's an exceptional performance space for live music, dance, or theatre, and the films here are those that one doesn't see elsewhere. The weekend attractions can get pretty crowded, but somehow it doesn't lessen the experience. Though we haven't been to the cafe recently, in past years, it has been more than just a convenient pre-performance venue, with an urbane charm all its own.

I have been to performances at the Gilman Opera House - both the movie theaters and the actual opera stage. But most recently I attended a performance at the Harvey Theater, a funky place. You don't want to sit in the balcony there if you can help it - for some reason, they use bar stools, so your feet do not touch the floor.

But in the orchestra is fine. We enjoyed our visit, for the "Being Shakespeare" show with British actor Simon Callow - quite wonderful.

Then afterward we were overjoyed to find the BAM Bus - somehow I have been going to things at BAM for years without ever having encountered this before. But for $7 you can take a leisurely busride back to Manhattan. It stops at numerous places, first on the eastside/3rd avenue, then goes through the park and stops on the upper westside, ending at Columbus Circle. Check out their website for more info: http://www.bam.org/view.aspx?pid=248.
