    Easily the best revival theater in NYC. A great assortment of classics, art house, indie, and documentary. A staple of the NYC film community.

    This legendary theater on West Houston has legendarily cramped seating that forces you to pay attention to the screen. It's real strength is showing films of yesteryear, many themed together. Read more

    My husband and I could watch movies all day here. The membership is definitely worth it. They have great 2-for-1 movies as well. Beware the popcorn is made with peanut oil which I'm allergic to.

    Quirky, fun, the good kind of vintage. Not your typical theater experience nor choice of movies but an extremely recommended experience. Popcorn in here is nostalgic in a way I can’t describe✨

    A NYC institution showing amazing gems. One of the few places in town where you can still feel the creativity of old New York.

    Love this place! They show a consistently great selection of new independent and classic movies. I took out a one year membership and haven't regretted it in the least.

    Get here early and bring cash. The theaters are small and can fill up quickly. P.S. - The egg creams are delicious!

    Film Forum updated its cinema with new, comfortable theater seating & a fresh marquee resembling the vintage model. Con Edison engineered newly lit movie screens and the new marquee.

    This theater has the best popcorn in NYC. They don't offer butter but all it needs is sea salt provided at the counter.

    They always play an eclectic but awesome selection of movies, but the popcorn is really barebones

    Treat yourself to the basic $75 annual membership, if you see one movie a month it pays for itself. Better yet go weekly to try to avoid the human race.

    Sadly, the renovation was a missed opportunity and leaves a lot to be desired. You’ll probably love this place if you’re tall, otherwise, enjoy bad popcorn and the back of someone’s head.

    Great place, great films. But get there early and bring your own hot melted butter. They oddly don't offer any.

    See all kinds of great revivals at the Film Forum. Fight the urge to pop a cap in all the Criterion snobs and self-congratulatory Baby Boomer film buffs who talk for the entire duration of the film.
