- Loews E-Walk, screens 12 and 13
247 W. 42nd St.; 212-505-6397
While the movies you’ll see here—Norbit, The Astronaut Farmer—aren’t gems, screens 12 and 13 are. First of all, they have a size and sound system that are unrivaled among the city’s bigger theaters, along with first-rate projection. The theater’s not superclean, but it’s better than it used to be, when it showed porn films. Located across from the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square, the E-Walk can attract a participatory crowd. Best to go during off-hours, when the space is so empty it feels like a private screening room.

So what exactly does “best” mean in a city with thousands of pizza joints, hundreds of celebrity masseuses, and museum-worthy concept shops on every corner? Well, in the case of this, our annual “Best of New York” roundup, there’s a heavy emphasis on what’s new or what has somehow remained virtually unheard of (until now, of course).
