Way up in the breast of Brooklyn, the Penthouse is another old reliable venue, filled as much with memories of past visits as it is with the more robust and mature entries in the festival and art house canon.

I don’t know what it is about the back rows at the Penthouse but whenever I take a date there I end up not remembering much of the movie. If you know what I mean.

Penthouse is a marvelous little cultural hub. They always have an immaculately curated selection of movies showing, the cafe section is top notch, and if you don't live in Brooklyn, it's an excuse to visit Brooklyn, which is a pretty nice suburb. I kinda feel like heading there right now.

The cafe at Penthouse is the perfect location for a first date. Not your average cinema cafe, Penthouse has a full menu and plenty of tables (though you may want to call ahead to reserve one-- they're quite popular!) Their salads are top-notch--try the halloumi or corn fritters--and they stock plenty of sweets for sharing. Plus if the date is going well, make it dinner and a movie... you're already at the theatre!
