All About Air Conditioning










Is there any place better to beat the heat than the cool darkness of a movie theater? Yes, we know we talked about movies al fresco not long ago, but that was before the heat wave. Now, we want our art ice-cold.  There are a plethora of fabulous art movie theaters in New York.  Here are a few to try:


Nitehawk Cinema

It’s worth the trek to Williamsburg to enjoy dinner & a movie–all at the same time. Check out the themed cocktails: The Clara Bow and Sofia Coppola Blanc de Blanc Mini are currently featured.

Now Playing: Frances Ha, Before Midnight, The Bling Ring, and Byzantium.  Oh, and Goodfellas starts at midnight on July 19th & 20th.
