One thing I’ve complained about living in Brooklyn is the lack of movie theaters. All that has changed with the Nitehawk Cinema located on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg. It is the PERFECT date night place. Not only do they have new indie releases BUT they also screen classics like Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and The Wizard of Oz. If you prefer to grab something to eat before the show, they have a full-service restaurant and bar on the ground floor or you can order food and drinks while you are watching the film.
So far I’ve had their vegetarian burger and popcorn. The popcorn was descent but the veggie burger was delicious. There are small tables located between each seat so you don’t have to put the plates on your lap. It’s perfect for first dates since you don’t have to make small talk and instead, nudge your partner and smile at interesting parts of the movie. Arrive early to snag a great seat, order food and watch the pre-show filled local filmmaker’s clips that are at times more entertaining than the feature film.
