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!

$15 for a matinee, but the Angelika is no AMC or Regal. Nice to see a quality film in a non-corporate setting. Will revisit soon!

*Cramped and uncomfortable seating *Tiny screens; viewing is impacted by long halls and oddly angled seats *Have to queue as a ticket holder and there's always an awkward mad dash for seats *Still, consistently good selection of indie and smart commercial films *Does not come close to the comfort and convenience of most 21st century theaters

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.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood 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.
