IFC on Waverly
We have been watching with baited breath for the IFC to open on 6th Avenue and Waverly. It opened a few weeks ago. That particular part of 6th Avenue is pretty scummy. I would hope that this theater will transform the neighborhood a bit. It would be a blessing. We will wait and see.
Yesterday I was hankering for some popcorn. I am a huge fan of popcorn and particularly good movie popcorn. I thought I could ask the people at the IFC if I could just come in and get some popcorn, and then take a peak around. Low and behold, there was a movie I wanted to see playing in 10 minutes, so I bought a ticket, got my popcorn and went in.
There are a few different theaters, I believe either 2 or 3. The seats are quite plush. The theater is a bit tight. It will be tough when the movie is crowded. Narrow stairways and only 2 single bathrooms upstairs. Bathrooms are downstairs in the basement too. Great concession stand. Chocolate bars from the Chocolate Bar, popcorn, healthy type nut snacks too. They really did a great job.
I saw the movie, ate my popcorn and strolled home. Welcome to the neighborhood IFC.
