I love going to the Film Forum and seeing an old Woody Allen movie. The space is small compared to the meg theaters showing new films, but it is pleasing in its own way. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I feel that all modern movies are about the same, with the same old story lines. It is nice to go back to the classics, like Singin' in the Rain. I feel lucky to see great films on a big screen.

The Film Forum is a New York City landmark, offering the most unique film selection in the city. The selection is so great that even if you have never heard of any of the films showing, you will not be disappointed by taking a chance of seeing any one of them. I should mention that if you're not an artsy-independent film lover, that you might not be too interested, but they also do show many classic films, such as Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". The only drawback is the size, it's a very small theater which can feel a bit claustrophobic at times, plus you want to get there early to buy your tickets because many shows sell out fast!

Film Forum is one of those places that remind you of why you want to live in NY. The movie selection is always great with new foreign flicks and arty revivals that you were probably too young to seen at the theater the first time around, so now's your chance. I recommend buying tickets ahead of time because tickets sell out really quickly. If a serious movie goer, a membership is probably your best value. Want to impress a date? Take him/her to an arty flick and then head around the corner for a romantic dinner at Bar Pitti.

While the seating and capacity can always improve, it's not what you come here for. From the time I saw a screening of Les Diaboliques ten years ago to Matthew Barney's The Cremaster Series this last year, they have always provided rare and cutting edge film outside the mainstream of cinema from right in the heart of downtown.

This non-profit SoHo theater is New York's premiere revival and repertory art cinema. The breadth and depth of their programming is truly stellar. Arrive early for popular showings - they often sell out. Also, a sleek lobby, always plastered with current and vintage movie posters. Worth getting a membership for reduced ticke prices.

Ah, the Film Forum. Probably the epicenter of prententious film appreciate in Manhattan. Though they premiere a number of new independent films, the Forum specializes in restoring and screening copies of classic and obscure cinema treasures, the number of which is huge and ever changing. They take film seriously, and they will not let you into a movie late or early. A friend of mine worked there last summer and had to turn away Faye Dunaway because she was late to a screening. Basically, if you're serious about film appreciation, you should make it to the Forum at least once a month. Plus, it's nonprofit.
