Screen Scenes: Criterion Cinemas, New Haven, CT
Ninety miles south of my home, is New Haven, CT. This small New England city is home to a Bow Tie theater, the Criterion Cinema. I first became aware of this little gem when my niece told me about a "fancy movie theater" she'd been to in New Haven. A quick internet search found the New Haven branch of this indie friendly chain, and I was hooked. On Mother's Day I had my first chance to visit this theater, it was a promotional showing of Waitress. Month's later, my movie buddy Deb and I, saw Darjeeling Limited and Gone Baby Gone. A quick walk across the street and we had sandwiches at Katz's Deli II after the show, yum! Convenient off the highway, safe easy parking garage across the street, comfy seating, friendly staff and flavored salt for the popcorn. A nice cinematic find.
