Share

The relentless march of technology combined with an increasingly service-oriented culture has affected all of our lives in important ways, including the way in which we watch movies. To lure people away from “Netflix and chill,” state-of-the-art cinema complexes have popped up like over-nuked bags of Orville Redenbacher, offering luxury, comfort, and gourmet food. No surprise that Westchester has its share of these haute movie houses. Which one is most likely to have you rejecting your own living-room sofa in favor of a nice mid-row seat?
