New York, movie capital of the world Bear Mkt's New York Cinema Guide ....
If you like film, New York's your place. If you like the latest Hollywood fare, it's there, but it's everywhere, too. It's in the more offbeat selections that the Big Apple shines. From black-and white classics to controversial documentaries to new independent movies to foreign film, you've got more choices in New York City than anywhere else. Here are a few places we like.

Film Forum, (209 W. Houston bet 6th & Varick) a long-time favorite, film classics & classic series, a specialty here.
