The Magnolia Theatre
This popular boutique theater with five screens plays a mixture of mainstream, independent and classic films. The modern atmosphere and cozy interior make for a sophisticated setting, a refreshing change from large multiplexes. Upstairs, sip pre- or post-movie cocktails in the bar, or take your drinks inside the theater with you. Its location in West Village, filled with boisterous restaurants and shops, means you can make a day or night of it.
Even with the garage, parking in West Village can be a challenge, especially on weekends. A valet can alleviate the headache.
