Which Williamsburg Movie Theater is Right for You?

Slightly Less Mainstream Stuff
Artier fare tends not to play at the multiplexes, or at least stay there long—the stuff with prestigious directors and Hollywood stars that might not appeal to the kids, teenagers or families that account for so much movie-theater revenue. Nitehawk Cinema is good for this: right now they're showing Looper, Seven Psychopaths, Silver Linings Playbook and Killing Them Softly (as well as Francine with Melissa Leo). But the theater is more well-known for adopting the Alamo Drafthouse model: they serve food and booze to your seats, with movie-specific specials (like the current "Close the Loop Doughnut Holes" for Looper). They also have just a bar, in case you like booze but not movies. [photo]
