Saw Taxi Driver in 35mm on opening day. A welcome addition to the arthouse theaters in NYC. Beautiful wooden seats and a coziness and intimacy akin to a golden era. I can only imagine this place will become even more personalized and the opening spring 2016 program hints at so many interesting and exclusive events and screenings to come.

The atmosphere looks dark and seats uncomfortable and the admission price is a standard NYC high. I like that they show 35MM, I’ll try it out and hope it’s a good bet.

Metrograph is great! Especially the balcony! Went to see House Of Traps (1982) and had a blast. Place is bit twee but I like their programs and am thus far quite satisfied.

Nice restaurant, but the cinemas themselves have the most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in, and they also have bad acoustics because of plain brick walls. But hey, it’s trendy.
