There are good things about the Angelika, and there are bad things. First, the good. The Angelika does show current indie hits that might be more difficult to find elsewhere in the city, and the location is great. Now for the bad. The ticket prices are expensive, and the moviegoers and the staff are pretentious. While I'm sure this isn't always the case, it has been for me for the last five times I've been there. So, if you can't find the film you want anywhere else, come here.

If Angelika was any place else in NY I would think it's great, but it's not like this is the only theater in the city to go to for indies or foreign flicks. The screens aren't that great and the subway runs underneath the theater and rumbles during the movie, which I find to be somewhat distracting. One bonus: close proximity to NYU so some of the best on line eavesdropping of ridiculously pretentious NYU film students

If ever there were a theater ripe for an overhaul it would be here, especially now that it competes with the Landmark Sunshine a few blocks away. While the location is deep in the heart of SoHo, it's relic like presence seems more novelty than avant garde in the mall of a neighborhood, especially when Film Forum also not far away has much more credibility.

Angelika is "cool". It was one of the first theatres in NYC that showcased true indie and foreign flicks. There's a huge lobby with a cafe where you can wait for friends as your film is being announced. The theatres downstairs are small and uncomfortable. And of course, occassionally hear and feel the subway rumble. Though the noise and lack of comfort is more of a charm rather than a nuisance.

Angelika is a great place to see the latest in independent and foreign film. With multiple screens and clean facilities, not to mention a great location in the heart of lower Manhattan, it beats going to the chain multiplexes. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the prices remain expensive, but that's hard to avoid in the city.

PROS: Nice facilities, good movies
CONS: Expensive

The Angelika Film Center is the place in New York to go for foriegn and independent films. They have a bunch of screens so something interesting is always just starting. It can get crowded on Friday and Saturday evenings the rest of the time you can drop in and see something different. They have a little cafe which serves pretty good cake and brownies at a decent price. This is a great first date place for people who enjoy independent films.

PROS: Cool Movies and Brownies
CONS: The Subway runs behind the theater and you can hear the trains go thru

This is the perfect theater to go see an indie film in. Almost right at the Broadway/Lafayette stop, it always has the best of the season's films. The cafe is truly a cafe and has an incredible amount of tasty treats (although very expensive), while downstairs in the theater area, there is the regular concession stand with pocorn and soda. The theaters themselves are not too large and the clinetelle usually has a respect for the movie not found in larger complexes. A trip worth taking if you don't leave nearby.

The Angelika tends to show the best in current art flicks. Among the art cinemas of New York, it seems to be somewhat maligned, though I've never had a bad experience there (leaving aside some of the movies I've watched, of course). Features a comfortable lobby upstairs, where you can hang out without purchasing any concessions. Also, they take credit/debit cards!

Angelika is the first place I think of when I want to see an indie film. Although a lot of the Loews in Manhattan may play them too - Angelika's selection is always more extensive. The place is great, but the cafe (like any other movie theater with food and drink) is expensive. If you're into indie films, try the Angelikas if you're tired of going to the big chains all the time.

This theatre only has a few screens, but it's frequently opens independent films before anyone else. You'll want to buy your tickets early. It's very close to NYU campus, so it's a hot spot for college students - especially film students. It also has a great cafe, it's one of the few movie theatres where you can enjoy a glass of wine along with your film.

I really like this movie theater. It usually shows really good films, and the "cafe," although extremely overpriced, is a nice place to sit after you buy tickets while you are waiting for your movie to start (and you can sit there even if you do not buy anything).

Even though the local Loews will play independent films in New York, Angelika is definitely the place to go for the most offbeat, low-budget, or foreign films that are currently out. They have a small cafe upstairs that has a lot more to offer than the normal movie theater fare, and encourage patrons to stay there and have coffee after the show.
