Fodor's Review

In addition to premiering new international features and documentaries that are otherwise hard to catch on the big screen, this nonprofit theater with three small screening rooms hosts movies by canonized directors such as Hitchcock, Godard, and Bertolucci; in-depth film series devoted to particular actors or genres; and newly restored prints of classic works. The small café in the lobby serves tasty cakes and freshly popped popcorn. This is no megaplex; be prepared for small seats and screens and a cash-only box office (credit cards can be used to buy tickets online in advance).
