Best Non-Multiplex Multiplex - 2000
BAM Rose Cinemas
A huge but welcoming comfort zone, BAM Rose Cinemas boasts the finest multitheater filmgoing amenities in the five boroughs. Featuring vast screens, plush (and steep!) stadium seating, a mix of Angelika-ish current releases and quirky repertory programming, good-natured clientele who remember to turn off their cell phones (one glaring exception: July 9, 9:30, Fallen Angels. All four of youfor shame!), and downright daunting concession stands offering Ben & Jerry's, iced coffee, and deep bins of self-serve bulk candy, BAM's subway-convenient fix for your movie jones suggests the happy marriage of a well-kept googoplex and the Walter Reade, honeymooning in Fort Greene.
