Best New Theater for Old Movies

  • Museum of the Moving Image

    36-01 35th Ave., at 37th St., Astoria 718-777-6888

    The centerpiece of the freshly renovated museum is a steep 267-seat theater paneled in Yves Klein blue— an ideal environment for plunging into cult classics like Time Bandits or Forbidden Planet. The theater evokes the ornate movie palaces of yore, albeit one that can handle every projection technology from 16-mm. film to digital 3-D.
