Hg2 : The Hedonist

Sunshine Cinema

This isn’t only regarded the best Movie Theatre in NYC, but it’s heralded as having the Best Popcorn, showing the Best American Indies and global Best Cult Films – according to the stream of awards that follow its name. And now we’re putting its name in lights too.

The building, built back in 1898, first served as a Yiddish vaudeville house for over 50 years before being transformed into (partly) what you see today. It originally opened as a movie house called the Houston Hippodrome motion picture theatre – before Landmark Theatre transformed it into one of their super special cinema chains.
Sunshine Cinema opened in 2001 to critical acclaim, offering five state-of-the-art screens (with stadium-style seating) dedicated to first-run independent and foreign films as well as the non-traditional studio shows – this truly is an art house.
Special additions include vegan cookies and ten different popcorn seasonings as well as a Japanese rock garden and a third story glass viewing bridge, with spectacular views over the city.
