Best wacked-out half-art-house movie theater (2008)


The stairways at COBBLE HILL CINEMA are lined with busted, enormous painted faces, enough to intoxicate you with amusement even before you sit down. Here Marilyn looks like she just had her wisdom teeth out, Jack Nicholson grins goofily with crap oozing out of his lips, and Marlene Dietrich's eyebrows look even more fucked than in real life. The exterior: huge painted panels of scenes from famous movies—for instance, Scarlett O'Hara as a pinhead on the stairway to Rhett's bedroom.
