Last year when I visited, I ate before the movie and the food was delayed for so long that I missed part of the film. So with this visit I decided to allow an hour to eat. My partner and I both ordered simple snacks...More

Used to eat here a bit. Great movies and cinema. Food and service just kill the restaurant. Run out of this, got only one of this. Hopeless. Could be so good with a little organisation. Good for movies only. Eat and drink elsewhere. Brooklyn has...More

Beautiful theater to see. We have seen film festival showings as well as new releases. Nice cafe if you want food or snacks. They do not allow hot food into the theater, a bit different from others in town.

So Burger and fries takes over a half hour to deliver. And the place is half empty. Perhaps they need to be left alone to work on their game. Not sure if they have anyone in-charge to do that though.
