This is right on West Street at the very end of 57th Street in Manhattan. The area is pretty scant and under final construction as new buildings are just opening there. This theater is on the ground floor of some slanted pyramid shaped new building near the cruise line piers.

There is an upscale restaurant right next door. Other than Hudson Market at other end of block on 11th Ave - a deli across the street on 11th, the theater is way down on 12th Avenue. But it's not so bad if you are not walking in inclement weather.

The staff were all wonderful! Many theaters have staff that are just there for the paycheck, it seems the staff here are happy and instructed to treat the guests like VIP's with a smile.

The theater is brand new! The floors clean. No funky odors or greasy floors.
The seats are fantastic.. almost full reclining plush leather like big lounge chairs that operate by electric switch on in side of arm rest. Large cup holder on every armrest.

Sound and images were as good as any great theater.

Inconvenient location to get to by public transportation (th M31 turns on 11th just up the block near Hudson Market, so it doesn't even make it down the long avenue to other corner where theater is). I believe I saw an indoor garage entrance on same block.

Restrooms are pretty clean, so clean I decided to visit it twice.

Clutter free welcoming concession stand (could get over run if crowded) and a bar area in front of theater. From what I saw it seemed all the theaters were on the same floor (#4 and #5? were just a few steps down from others, and where ladies room is; men's room in near #4).

It was a nice experience thanks to the staff, its upkeep and of course how new it is. Give it a year or two and lets see how well this location is maintained. My guess the staff here is onboard and efficient and see a clean fresh theater with happy guests means job security :)

Enjoy the show!

This theater is located kind of away from the city center, not very convenient spot to get to. But, that comes with less crowded theaters, which is nice.

They offer is a bit unusual. Very interesting films, like international films and independent films that are not offered at other theaters. With that, it is a bit pricey. We went to see an international film during a normal matinee hours, but that does not matter at this theater, it still is pricey, not matter what day or time you go.

The inside was very clean, large, with high quality installation. The screen is not huge, but a good size. The interior design was very simple, modern bur kind of monochromatic and dark.

The seats are pre-selected at the time of purchase. The chairs were nice, soft leather, large and comfy. They recline and the foot rest comes up for complete relaxation. BUT, some the chair that I was sitting didn't work so well...

Acoustic was really good, and the resolution the screen was good too.

A staff came in before the trailers started. He introduces himself with a smile and said to ask any question or concern we might have, which was a nice service.

After the movie, as we were leaving the theater, staffs greeted us and thanked us from coming. Very nice service, but not a movie theater that I would frequent, due to location and price. It is good to know that we have a movie theater that offers interesting foreign and independence films.

If you want to go out on a date or out with friends, this movie theatre has it all. You don't have to leave. You go to the movies and when you come out, you can go to their restaurant JD's (not sure if they are apart of the actual theatre), and have some drinks and sliders or a bite to eat. Make sure you have money on your card or good amount of cash on you. This place is pricey. But going to the movies and then having a place to go to eat and have drinks all in one spot, it thumbs up for me. And you can pick out where you want to sit in the theatre and they have reclining seats (put your feet up honey! They have a special section for handicap seating if you have a wheelchair. Only thing is that I wish they had floor lighting. Makes it hard to find your seat when you go to get popcorn or go to the bathroom. It was so dark in the theatre, I couldn't even see where my friend was sitting. And about the bathroom; you are in your own little private room. They have two flushing methods to conserve water, right for #1 and Left for #2. If you are taking the train there, you must know that this place is on 12th avenue by the highway. It's an out of the way spot. Defient recommend spot for a day out.
