There are two showings a night with two different movies for the showings. There are discounts for students, being $18.90, and to include bottomless popcorn, the price would be $22.45.

Not as interested in movies, but love music? Go to a secret concert! Sofar is a company that hosts secret concerts all throughout the city, from Manhattan to Brooklyn and all around. Lots of touring and local bands perform in these small local places to cater to people all over the city!
