I've always liked this theatre- it is not modern or flashy- just a cute old fashioned theatre with good movies. If you're looking for a quiet place to have some great popcorn and see a movie, this is it. If you're looking for flashy -

Brooklyn Heights Cinema was once my favorite theater in Brooklyn. They had a great selection of movies, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and tasty popcorn. Unfortunately, all that has changed and now my friends and I refuse to go there.

This theater is really small compared to the theater's of today but that is part of its charm. With only 2 screens, I think people tend to avoid it but that really shouldn't be the case. It's comfortable, the staff is excellent and you don't get pushed around by a bunch of kids. A very pleasant experience.

A hole in the wall - very unpleasant movie going experience.

Here's an interesting news article I found about the owner/operator: bit.ly/ckoVMl

love this place. Ive been twice in the past 2 weeks, to see Mr. Fox and An Education=both cool movie selections.

best yet, there is a hot French girl who knows about cinema, and an overall really helpful staff. I like cozy places like this, though it can get a bit cramped. Either way, check this place out.

Pros: hot girl at box office, excellent popcorn

Cons: bit cramped, small,

The movie selections here tend to be a cut above the usual movie theatre's. It's a bit of a throwback to theatres of the old days, before they were supersized and modernized. You can still see a movie here for $6 (Tuesdays and Thursday specials) and I've never seen it full, even though it's small (two screens).

I've been going to this cinema since I was little and am so happy to see it still around. The movies played here are consistently great for prices still better than in Manhattan. Great restaurants and bars sit nearby. The theatre audience here stays quiet and respectful, unlike some of the big theatres. Added bonus: With so many subways stopping in the neighborhood, it is easily accessed from Manhattan and other areas of Brooklyn.

Pros: Movie selections, things to do in the area

This magical theater should be put on the endangered species list. Everything about this place is completely endearing, right from the "Admit One" stubs to the real popcorn served with real butter and the free pixie sticks at the concession stand. The theater has only two screens but management seems to make very good use of the limited space with a tasteful selection of titles. You are unlikely to see the big summer blockbusters here but this is a perfect spot for an indy film or a romantic flick. The best thing is there is SO MUCH to do in the neighborhood before/after the movie you could make a full day out of it. There are several great restaurants on Henry street and the bar next door to the theater serves excellent finger food and a wide variety of beer on tap. The Fulton landing with it's breathtaking views of the Brooklyn bridge and the skyline of downtown Manhattan and the Brooklyn Ice cream Factory are just a short walk away.

Pros: never crowded, top selection of movies, real popcorn/butter

Cons: only two screens

this theatre is a hidden treasure....although the $5 nights are long gone... they are booking the types of little indies, foriegn and art films you can only find in Manhattan...it is cool and laid back and the staff is friendly...close to the brooklyn heights prominade and the brooklyn bridge...we like to eat at Noodle Pudding(Italian) and walk up 20 minutes before showtime...the concession has great coffee too!

Pros: fun relaxed atmoshere

Cons: no matinee prices

It's an old time theater that is always showing good and interesting movies. It's rarely crowded, which, compared to the closer and bigger multiplex, is a blessing. (I like to be the only person talking during a movie.) The popcorn and candy are fine, but sneak in your own drinks.

Pros: good movies, quiet audience

Cons: sometimes the drinks are kind of flat

They know their films!!! This is a truly independent theatre showing the same films as lincoln plaza or angelika or sunshine... comfortable seats, big screen and none of the hastle of the bigger theatres...great coffee too.

Run by a knowledgable staff that LOVES film.

It's small but the seats are comfortable, the popcorn is great and there's no pretension about this little cinema in Brooklyn Heights. Usually has a great movie selection, too. However, they have caught up with rest of NYC in their admission price which is actually $10 not $8.50 as this website advertises. Highly recommended. Brooklyn doesn't have a lot of great choices for movie houses outside of BAM, which doesn't turn over their movies fast enough. Cobble Hill is uncomfortable and the popcorn is crap.

Pros: Great Popcorn, Comfortable seats, laid back atmosphere

A two-screen theater, Brooklyn Heights Cinema, like Cobble Hill Cinema a little further down the line, has a great Tuesday/Thursday deal: $6 bucks entry. About half of the programming is art/indie film. An added bonus - there's cheap Middle Eastern (great Falafel) up the block and a Chinese joint that's pretty depressing, but in a good way.
