Our locations —

The Paris Theatre
A cultural icon in NYC, the Paris Theatre, which opened in 1948, is in a prime midtown location across the street from the iconic Plaza Hotel. The history and legacy of this location remains, alongside 2017 upgrades and new features including all new seats, and reserved seating for more convenient movie-going!

The Beekman Theatre
The Beekman Theater is one the only remaining ‘twin’ cinemas in Manhattan, featuring two auditoriums that are precise mirror images of one another. Best known for the National Theatre & Bolshoi Ballet screenings, the Beekman is a neighborhood gem featuring a curated mix of hit blockbusters and exclusive independent film.

City Cinemas 1, 2 & 3
This three-screen theater is brimming with charm following its 2014 renovation, and is equipped with luxury recliner seats, and auditorium #1 houses the largest screen on the Upper East Side. With curated film selections, delectable cafe-fare at the concession stand, and the popular ‘Recline for 9 After 9’ program, this location is the prime spot for a stay-cation.

East 86th St. Cinema
Built in 1934, East 86th Street Cinemas is an enduring neighborhood movie theater that features all the best blockbusters, alongside special programs to make you feel at home. Reserved seating makes your movie experience even more convenient, and you can ‘Wake Up’ at City Cinemas for just $8 when you attend before-noon showtimes. 86th Street also features our annual ‘Reel Kids $1 Summer Series’ and a weekly ‘Crybaby Matinee’ – Wednesdays at 11am – giving new parents a movie experience with less worry & added comfort.

Village East Cinema
This East Village gem features eclectic programming from hit blockbusters to exclusive indies, alongside our never-short supply of screenings on 70mm and 35mm film, and special programs like the summer Studio Ghibli Festival, a classics series led by drag queen Hedda Lettuce, Musical Mondays (a Broadway fan’s dream), and anime screenings you won’t want to miss!
