A great IMAX theater with possibly the biggest screen in new york city!!! The service is great and prompt with moderate pricing on snacks. The ticket prices are worth it as you are looking at a monster of a screen and it completely takes over your vision. Would recommend this theater to any movie buff!!

I used to go there all the time when I was on the Upper West Side. Fantastic for big-screen Hollywood fare, with the occasional smaller film showing. Great layout as far as theaters go, extremely spacious. More upscale crowd than the Times Square theaters. If you're looking for dinner or afterwards or a good book, nearby Ollie's and Barnes & Noble provide other great local options.

This theatre is a great place to see both the top films and the occasional indy film. Relatively free of tourist types, the theatre still gets very busy at night. If going on the weekend, be sure to buy your tickets in advance. The IMAX theatre is a lot of fun, but beyond that one of their several screens is massive. If you can catch a movie in that theatre you have your choice of main or balcony seating!!

I agree with other users that this used to be one of my favorite theaters, but the long lines and perpetually sold out shows takes this theater down several notches. The theater at Union Square is just as good, plus stadium seating and shorter lines. This theater is totally not worth it, but if you decide to go, double check the movie times because the theater time does not always match the times listed in the paper.

This is a clean theater in a great neighborhood, and the crowds actually shut up and watch the movies when they start. I love it!
As for that review which complained about the long line...yes, you do have to arrive early since this is a great theater, in a movie-going neighborhood. But really, buy your tickets online and just go pick them up at the kiosk. Can't get any simpler than that! If you arrive at most theaters 5 minutes before the movie starts you are going to get a bad seat, if any--this one is no exception.

It's clean, comfortable, and attractively decorated. My big problem with this place? They only have ONE long line for all movies. Even if your movie is starting in 5 minutes, you have to wait behind 50 people buying tickets for shows in 2 hours. So for any show, you have to arrive ridiculously early. And it's not worth the wait.

This used to be my favorite theater in Manhattan, until I discovered stadium seating at UA Union Square and the sublime environs and selection of the Sunshine. I still like the over-the-top decor, but the theaters are substandard now, compared to its competitors, seating- and sound-wise. And in such a busy neighborhood, all shows are almost always sold out.
