"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute

The classic Upper West Side revival house. Used to feel like sitting in the mouth of a whale, all the blood rushing to the back of your head.

This would have been a good double feature to catch, though, huh?

My parents and I used to frequent the Thalia regularly. I remember seeing some great ones; Annie Hall and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest come to mind. I remember this noisy sixty-something UWS type lady (I'm thinking shrink)sitting directly behind me turning to her friend and saying in the loudest NY accent whisper imaginable, "This is where the Indian suffocates Jack Nicholson with a pillow." A spoiler is there ever was one.

I might've even seen Field of Dreams there. Or some place like it.
Cramped, but it was ours.

Hilarious that you saw Annie Hall there.
