This staple cinema near Washington Square Park does a great job of varying its slate with a range of projects audiences want to see. It’s also home to America's largest documentary festivals and series, including Queer/Art/Film, which was started in 2009 by the filmmakers Adam Baran and Ira Sachs. I’ve done a number of podcasts in the Green Room. IFC was renovated several years ago, but it’s a bit cramped inside and popular titles often sell out.
Foreign, classic & offbeat indie films are screened along with short subjects at this movie theater.
Independent,documentary,arthouse,and obscure films in the heart of the West Village.
Place got history. Films and cool t-shirts. You're in Greenwich Village / NYU land here so snap a few pics of all the eccentric city dwellers.
“Popular venue for new indie & foreign films, shown on 5 screens, with on-premises cafe.”
“Reserve a table and try out Murray's delicious cheeses and seasonal meats. Wash it all down with a delightful glass of wine.”
“some classics don’t go out of style. New York’s repertory film culture is second only to Paris, and the Forum has been in the game for a long time. (Honorable mention to IFC Center and Metrograph). West Village.”
“iconic jazz bar for the best jazz in the world. great intimate atmosphere and venue.”
“Greenwich village has so much cultural history and Washington Square is bang in the middle of it with buskers and entertainers, chess playing, and general colorful New York arty types. Tip: On Macdougal St just next to it are some great take out places to grab food to eat in the park, the most legendary of which is "Mamoun's Falafels" -- delicious, vegan and under $5!”
