It is not difficult to rhapsodize about the oasis-like quality of the movie theatre, especially during high summer, and especially in a place like New York City. When relentless heat and humidity have transformed your neighbors into the crankiest and most pungent versions of themselves, and riding the subway feels like being jerkily ferried into Hades by a cackling Charon, the cinema beckons—so chilly, so dark, so gloriously quiet. There are snacks on offer, none of them responsibly sourced or
