Sunshine Cinema Review

Talk about busy: according to a Village Voice article, this building, which supposedly dates back to 1844, has served as "a church, an immigrant meeting hall, a boxing venue, a nickelodeon, a Yiddish vaudeville house, a hardware warehouse, a graffiti showcase, and an indie-rock playroom." Since 2001, it's been a great neighborhood theater showing a mix of art-house and smaller-release mainstream independent films on five decent-size screens. Great midnight movies, too.
