However, with the advent of Dekk restaurant's weekly Superfilm Tuesday nights and now the montly Dine-In Theater at The Archive in East Williamsburg, there are now a few options for high quality nosh with a side of cinema.

Tonight at Dekk watch two short films by Christine Sciulli at 7:30 pm and then John Schlesinger's Billy Liar (1963) at 8 pm. Dekk is located on 134 Reade St. in Tribeca and features an American and Italian influenced menu. For more info on upcoming films or if you'd like to submit your short film for consideration, contact Nami and Johnny K at superfilmnyc@gmail.com.

Then on Thursday, The Archive (49 Bogart St., directly off the Morgan L stop) will be hosting their first Dine-In Theater, a monthly event pairing dinners cooked by a changing roster of New York chefs with a film. Leighton Edmondson will be cooking a three course French meal with each course served to coincide with the disjointed courses in Luis Bunuel's Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie. The dinner costs $38 and includes "unlimited" wine which seems like it actually makes it a deal. Rsvp is required, so call (718) 381-1944 or e-mail info@thearchivemedia.com to reserve.
