New York City is one of the most cinematically compelling cities in the world and has been immortalized in film more than perhaps anywhere else.
But it isn’t just a setting in a movie. It’s at the very center of international film culture, thanks in large part to the Tribeca Film Festival, which is held every spring, just steps from 12 Warren’s luxury condos. But even in the summer and fall, these Tribeca homes for sale—up the street from Film Forum and the Regal Battery Park Stadium right by the river—are the perfect place to be close to the cutting edge of cinema and innovative programming.
209 West Houston Street
At Film Forum, residents of 12 Warren Street’s new luxury apartments have access to one of the most prestigious movie theaters in the world, famous for showing the highest caliber of new, international, and repertory art house films since its inception in 1970. On August 26th, the theater will host a rare Q&A in person with James Ivory, the legendary film director, at its 6:30 screening of his 1992 award-winning film Howard’s End. From August 31st through September 13th, the theater will host a documentary about author and philosopher John Berger directed by a team of filmmakers and intimates of the film’s subject, including Tribeca Film Festival frequenter and favorite Tilda Swinton. The film features an innovative approach to the documentary genre with private scenes of Berger at home cooking, talking, and drawing with Swinton—providing a rare glimpse into the minds of one of the greatest living international writers and one of the greatest living actresses of our time.
Regal Battery Park Stadium
102 North End Avenue
If you are in the mood to take a short walk from 12 Warren, settle yourself in a giant recliner with a bucket of popcorn, and catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster, Regal Battery Park Stadium makes this possible every night of the week. The Regal, which is also host to a number of the screenings for the Tribeca Film Festival is the perfect place to see Jason Bourne or Ben-Hur on opening night in a palatial setting where even the quietest scenes are monumental, and then emerge into the night to take a walk along the river. The Regal also hosts live opera and dance screenings, as well as film offerings from Turner Classic Movies (TCM). This fall you can watch performances of Tristan und Isolde through The Met: Live in HD program, as well as performances by the Bolshoi Ballet, direct from Moscow, without leaving the neighborhood. And in September, TCM big screen classics will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Labyrinth (starring David Bowie) with a screening that includes previously unreleased content. The TCM series will also feature big screen runs of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpieces Dr. Strangelove and The Shining. Whatever film or performance you choose to see, you can finish the night with dinner or a cocktail at Locanda Verde, the restaurant opened by Tribeca Film Festival founder Robert De Niro, where you might spot an up-and-coming actress or a table of filmmakers and critics abuzz with the prospect of new talent at the upcoming Festival.
