PLAN DATE: TUES / JAN. 15
We’re doing movie night, lovers. Head to Cobble Hill Cinemas, a veteran theater that’s been around since the ‘60s. The theater shows a combination of first-run, independent, and foreign films, which, good news, means there’s definitely something you’ll want to see. Adult tickets are only $9—some of the cheapest in all of New York. Pick the movie you want to see here.
Before or after the movie, try old-world Italian spot Mama Maria’s. Both a pizzeria (known as Sal’s) and a classic restaurant, you’re coming here for carbs. We recommend the white clam pizza, the ricotta cavatelli with braised short rib ragu, and the Pollo Sorrentina (Mama Maria’s specialty) which is sautéed chicken scallopine topped with sliced eggplant, ham, and mozzarella in a light tomato sauce. Don’t skip the tiramisu and cappuccinos for dessert!
Cobble Hill Cinemas
265 Court Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: Probably geared toward kid parties, but how cool would it be to rent out the whole theater to see a movie with all your friends? $500 for 25 people.
305 Court Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: Mama Maria’s is open until 10:30 p.m., seven days a week. Fun fact, they were featured on an episode of Kitchen Nightmares, and have been beloved ever since.
