I saw a handful of films here when it was the Angelika, and saw one or two after it became the Sundance. While it was acceptable but not exceptional as the Angelika, I have to give it to the newer tenants – the Sundance Cinema experience is GREAT! And I have never had better popcorn in ANY movie theater, EVER.

I’ve never been to this theatre under any of its former (or current) tenant(s). However, it’s my understanding that this theater is actually not so great in terms of quality.
