SoHo - Nolita

Arts & Entertainment

Angelika Film Center

18 West Houston Street
New York City, NY 10012
212.995.2000
http://www.angelikafilmcenter.com

The mecca of New York film lovers, the theater itself is not actually that great. It has small screens and cramped, uncomfortable seating. But what this multi-screen cinema complex lacks in comfort it more than compensates for in ambiance and selection. Airing some of the finest independent and foreign films ever made, this is where sad film buffs go when they need a dose of cinematic happy (or rather, chilling and thought-provoking). And, if that weren't enough, they also have a fabulous café/snack bar that makes hot dogs and artificially-flavored popcorn seem like, well, exactly what they are.


 

Church of the Transfiguration

1 East 29th Street
New York City, NY 10016
212.684.6770
http://www.transfigurationnyc.org

This church is notable for a couple of reasons. First, the building was erected in 1849 and features a stained glass window rescued from the rubble of the Napoleonic wars. Second, is its association with the Episcopalian Actors Guild. The Guild's past and current members include Charlton Heston, Rex Harrison, Joan Fontaine and many other huge names of stage and screen


 

Film Forum

209 West Houston Street
New York City, NY 10014
212.727.8110
http://www.filmforum.org

Film Forum is a very unique non-profit film multiplex. Its programs consist of retrospectives, foreign films and documentaries that would never reach major audiences without them. In many cases, these films become huge indie hits. The actual facility leaves much to be desired, but Film Forum continues to sit at the center of the independent film movement.


 

Joyce SoHo

155 Mercer Street
New York City, NY 10012
212.431.9233
http://www.joyce.org

This is the downtown extension of the well-established Joyce Dance Theater at 19th Street and Eight Avenue. Like their other location, the downtown Joyce hosts a wide range of performances by international dance troops. Styles and forms vary widely and have recently included a show featuring dancers with disabilities.


 

Michael Anchin Glass

245 Elizabeth Street
New York City, NY 10012
212.925.1470
http://www.michaelanchin.com

This small gallery is filled with amazing pieces of glasswork. Anchin's items tend be quite colorful, unusual and suited for a variety of interior décor styles. Always one of a kind, these hand-blown works of art make wonderful gifts or home additions.


 

Peter Blum

99 Wooster Street
New York City, NY 10012
212.343.0441
http://peterblumgallery.com

Blum features some smaller works by some very big names. Case in point, a show called "Ode a? Lé Oubli," a handmade book by noted artist Louise Bourgeois.


 

Public Theater

425 Lafayette Street
New York City, NY 10003
212.539.8500
http://tickets.publictheater.org

Regarded as New York's most prestigious Off-Broadway theater, Joseph Papp, of Shakespeare in the Park fame, has put on legendary shows here for decades. And lucky for us New Yorkers, the tradition lives on.


 

Staley Wise

560 Broadway
New York City, NY 10012
212.966.6223
http://staleywise.com

For years, one of the biggest names on the SoHo gallery scene, they exhibit not only established works but also interesting, lesser-known artists. A photographic show featured the history of SoHo and New York past, called "Suzy to Twiggy: The Fashion Revolution 1950-1970."


 

Storefront for Art and Architecture

97 Kenmare Street
New York City, NY 10012
212.431.5795
http://www.storefrontnews.org

This storefront gallery showcases works that combine architecture and sculpture. They also do historical exhibits, such as one that recently spotlighted the architecture of Cuba from 1959-1969.


 

Swiss Institute

495 Broadway
New York City, NY 10012
212.925.2035
http://www.swissinstitute.net

If you equate Swiss with staid or conservative, think again. A recent work featured an exhibition of 1960s abstract works created by leading conceptual artists. If you are interested in edgy, contemporary art, their rotating shows are top of the line.
