The best word to describe Brooklyn Heights, the quiet little neighborhood on the east side of the Brooklyn Bridge, would be quaint. It’s the polar opposite of Lower Manhattan’s Financial District across the East River, with tree-lined blocks of brownstones, plenty of parks and the Brooklyn Heights Cinema. The two-room theater showcases independent films and its concession stand sells coffee and cookies along with the typical cinema fare: popcorn and soda. Skip the lines for the latest blockbuster at a chain theater and enjoy your movie with a side of old Brooklyn charm. For showtimes and more information, check out brooklynheightscinema.com.
