Art film afficionados get to relax on old cushioned couches without staying at home. – Overview
This quirkily quaint movie theater has filled over half its unraked seating area with rows of adjacent matching couches. Filmgoers demanding a more traditional setup can snag one of the conventional folding seats house left. The cafe up front--bisected by the exposed projection booth--is one part atelier with slanted roof, one part concession stand, one part ice cream parlor, and one part street-side sandwich shop.

Features and Attractions
How often do you imagine an episode of Matthew Barney's "Cremaster Cycle" gets extended by popular demand? When you factor in the relatively small screen, you have to concede repeat customers aren't coming solely for the programming (which includes pre-show music). A community cork board allows folks to post apartment rentals, help wanted ads and available services for you to consider while snacking on vegan pastries or, at the other end of the spectrum, jelly beans and Skittles dispensed by the gumball machines.
