The Nitehawk is a great, local business that shows indy films, serves food and drinks, and is generally awesome. They screen some old stuff and some new stuff, but often it's hard to get tickets unless you plan well in advance.

After multiple trips to NYC & exhausting all the 'usual' touristy places to go I wanted to try something a bit more off the beaten track. I found Nitehawk in a 'cool' cinema article & loved the sound of it - so we caught the L Train out to Williamsburg for a movie with food & beer waitress service. It... More

Well surprisingly he selected the place, and I must say this place was a hit. The movies aren't current showings, maybe independent writers.

If you love films and good food, I can't recommend a brunch screening at the Nitehawk enough! I went to see Planes, Trains and Automobiles as I was battling jetlag on my first morning in town - and their Bloody Mary and Huevos Rancheros eased me into NYC life nicely. The seating is first come, first served, so if you... More

Sundae is great and food is awesome. It's retro ambient will definitely make you feel happy. They should change their recipe for the Creme Brulee as it wasn't the only thing which wasn't great.

I visited this place in a weekend, didn't know anything about it. It was a great experience, very nice and different. They have a restaurant in lower level and a bar on the second floor, right in from of the waiting area. Inside the cinema the chairs have tables and a menu, you can order drinks and food..!! I really... More

Great beer, diverse selection of popular, indie and classic movies, awesome staff and great stadium seating - the seating is crucial for a great dinner movie experience and they do this way better than other dinner cinema experiences I've had. The food is beyond what I would expect for a movie experience - it's not michelin star, but far better... More

I'm a fan! I came here for my first time last weekend for a screening of War Dogs and I love this theatre. Although I wish their menu was more expansive (wings anyone?) I appreciate a lot the fact that they actually have a menu full of real food, the seats are really comfortable and the waiters are so nice.... More
