209 W. Houston St., New York, NY 10014, United States

It's not the ambiance that brings crowds to this art-house cinema in the West Village—the seats are rock-hard and undersized and the facility years past a refresh. With its three small theaters often jam-packed, there's little question as to what provides the draw. From a 3D version of Kiss Me Kate to a Stanley Kubrick film festival, Film Forum's uncommon lineup is a Manhattan cinephile's dream. First-run indie and foreign films are shown nightly alongside popular restored classics and film retrospectives. Arrive early for the European coffee-bar style concession, which offers cake, freshly baked Hitchcock cookies and popcorn cooked in peanut oil (there's a secret stash of lemon and lime wedges beneath the counter to give your popped snack a Spanish flavor).
