Gothamist looked at their 12 best theaters in New York City and some of the categories may surprise you. Maybe they were just trying to find some way to reward a few special theaters but you’ll get to read about Best Theater to Score a Last Minute Blockbuster Ticket and Best Gem Hidden in a Multiplex.

Another stupid and unfair list.

The Sunshine is a mess of uncomfortable seats and tiny screens playing the latest mainstream crap and trying to market it as trendy before it plays in Brooklyn and Queens ‘arthouses’ a week later.

The Lincoln Plaza has obstructed column views and noisy seniors chatting throughout the basement tube screen auditoria. AMC in the seventies at best.

The Film Forum plays the best films under the worst circumstances with obstructed columns and tiny uncomfortable seats. Wait for the DVD which is usually out a week after this venue shows it to promote its release.

New York has the Lincoln Square, 34th Street East, Kips Bay and Regal 42nd Street E-walk. All the rest are crap and the Ziegfeld is a lottery as it is closed when you least expect it.

NYC theatres are in a self created crisis and the boxoffice grosses show it.

I like the Film Forum for its selection and it does have the best popcorn without butter, I’ve ever eaten. To this day, I’m kicking myself for missing the Don Siegel retrospect they had there. Sunshine is not that small to me, I like it. New York ticket prices are out of hand,most these movies out are not worth $14.00 even worse an IMAX 3D upgrade. If I shell out $20.00 at Lincoln Sq., I better not see any blue texting lights. Also hate it when mental pygmies drape their disgusting feet over the seats in front of them. More and more the movie theaters are losing people such as I.Since I live in the Philadelphia area, instead of going to the Agelika, or Lincoln Plaza, I catch the film at Ritz or even better the Rave theaters near me.
