I just wanted to share this awesome theatre with you guys. I live in the neighborhood and frequent Nighthawk because you can tell the owners really care about a great cinema experience. They play current indie movies, thinking man blockbusters, classics, and have random events. They serve real food such burgers, chips and queso ( my favorite ), desserts and alcohol in the theatres, and have two bars in the lobby areas. One lobby acts as a lounge to wait for the show. The other is a restaurant. I've re-watched Looper
here twice. I love that they do custom specials in the theme of the movies. My favorite cocktail was the one created for Drive
, "The Driver". Looper was complemented by "Close the Loop Doughnut Holes" and "Joe on Ice". They do not show traditional trailers, but instead screen shorts custom made for the feature presentation. For Looper
they showed one short that was retro-futuristic music videos and movie clips and a second that was a cheeky homage to Bruce Willis. If anyone lives in New York or plans to visit definitely check out Nighthawk.http://www.nitehawkcinema.com/screenings.php
That is so incredibly cool.
I live in Silverlake, right up the street from Sunset Junction, and it is the Williamsburg of LA. Or at least I thought it was, and then I walked through Williamsburg a few months ago for the first time in awhile, and I realized we're not even close.
