  • Kent Theatre
    The Kent Theatre in Flatbush isn't just a movie theater?it's a movie star. A fixture in the neighborhood for many decades, the space was a favorite hangout of a teenage Woody Allen in the 1950s. Perhaps that was the reason he chose the Kent when scouting locations for The Purple Rose of Cairo, his paean to the early, less spaceship-filled days of cinema. The movie house still retains its vintage charm today, welcoming patrons with dramaturgical masks on its marquee and new releases on its three screens.

  • The Pavilion Theater
    With an American flag hanging from its brick façade and its name scrawled in red cursive atop an old-fashioned marquee, The Pavilion Theater looks like it sprung from the screen of a 1950s film. But in reality, it stands right in the middle of Brooklyn. The two-story neighborhood picture house combines both of these worlds, whisking away audiences to another era with its quaint charm and sepia ushers while staying current with a rotating roster of newly released films.

  • Cinema Village
    Originally a Loews theater, Alpine Cinemas in Brooklyn first opened its doors to the public on June 6, 1921. It was the golden age of silent film, when movie theaters were palaces, moving pictures were a thrilling novelty, and spoken language had yet to be invented. Today, the Bay Ridge multiplex retains much of its old-timey charm, its towering façade covered with ornate architectural terra-cotta designs. Inside, visitors of all ages munch on popcorn and sip sodas as they watch indie films, summer blockbusters, and 3D epics on eight different screens.
