Nitehawk is a neighborhood cinema with a decidedly Brooklyn approach. There is a bar and lounge on the main floor for before- or after-show lingering. Upstairs, by the screening rooms, another bar serves guests while they wait to be seated. Once inside the theater, movie watchers are presented with a menu from chef Michael Franey that features specialty cocktails and upscale riffs on theater favorites, like nachos, risotto ball, and gourmet popcorn. Reserve tickets in advance, and expect lots of indie film and arts programming, including special screening events with directors and actors.
