FIVE NEW NYC CINE­MAS

Five New York cine­mas cel­e­brate an era be­fore stream­ing, even as home stream­ing con­tin­ues to threaten the ex­is­tence of the movie the­ater, these re­silient art-house cine­mas in New York are prov­ing that there’s still magic to be found in a dark room full of strangers.

IPIC

Sit­u­ated within the Sea­port Dis­trict’s Fulton Mar­ket Build­ing, iPic The­aters takes on an in­ti­mate in­dus­trial art gallery feel with orig­i­nal art in­stal­la­tions cel­e­brat­ing New York and the world’s best street artists through­out the en­ter­tain­ment des­ti­na­tion. This marks the sec­ond of three iPic

The­aters to open for iPic En­ter­tain­ment in the tri-state area. Next up is iPic’s Dobb’s Ferry lo­ca­tion slated to open this May. At the sec­ond floor, guests will dis­cover The Tuck Room, a spir­ited drink­ing and din­ing den and vi­brant so­cial des­ti­na­tion with an ur­ban chic at­mos­phere, which nightly show­cases Adam Seger, Master Bar­man and Ad­vanced Som­me­lier and a menu by Sherry Yard. 11 Fulton St; ipicthe­aters.com

MET­RO­GRAPH

The newly opened Deco the­ater on the Lower East Side fea­tures a se­lec­tion of cult clas­sics, archival prints shown on high-end 35 mm pro­jec­tors, and newer in­de­pen­dent films. Also: but­toned-up ush­ers, recher­ché pop­corn, and hard-tofind can­dies. The Com­mis­sary, Met­ro­graph’s 1920s throw­back restau­rant, of­fers a menu in­spired by old-time Hol­ly­wood stu­dio cafe­te­rias. 7 Lud­low St.; met­ro­graph.com

NITE­HAWK PROSPECT PARK

When it opens in the fall, Nite­hawk’s sec­ond Brook­lyn lo­ca­tion, in Park Slope, will of­fer the same three-course din­ner as the orig­i­nal, in Wil­liams­burg. Furtive servers will deftly de­liver craft cock­tails and sea­sonal fare to and from ta­bles while movies-niche in­de­pen­dent films, campy clas­sics, and well-cu­rated wide re­leases-screen above. 188 Prospect Park West; nite­hawkcin­ema.com

QUAD CIN­EMA

When the Quad Cin­ema closed its doors in 2015, Green­wich Vil­lagers feared that New York’s old­est mul­ti­screen the­ater was done for. In­stead, the beloved art house un­der­went a ma­jor ren­o­va­tion and will re­open in the spring, with one screen ded­i­cated to clas­sics and three screens play­ing new in­de­pen­dent and for­eign films. 34 W. 13th St.; quad­cin­ema.com

ALAMO DRAFT­HOUSE

The Austin-based dine-in the­ater chain opened its first lo­ca­tion in New York City in Oc­to­ber, bring­ing both stu­dio and in­de­pen­dent films (and a no-non­sense no-cell phone pol­icy) to down­town Brook­lyn. Alamo’s ex­ec­u­tive chef, Fer­nando Maru­landa, pre­vi­ously of Danny Meyer’s Blue Smoke, cre­ated the menu. 445 Al­bee Sq. West; draft­house.com
