Fodor's Expert Review Sunshine Cinema

Lower East Side Film

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Talk about busy: according to a Village Voice article, this storied building, which reportedly 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 play, too.
