Nothing can take your mind off something quite like a movie can. Whether you are in it for a cry fest of a chick-flick or an indie discovery, The Angelika can give you just what you need. This movie theater is more than just a comfy chair in an air-conditioned room, it also boasts a full cafe with everything from scones to quiche to salads. Treat yourself to a delicious lunch surrounded by movie posters from a decade you only wish to have been a part of and chandeliers to up the atmosphere, then sink into a big red recliner and just veg out for a few hours. Go on, you know you deserve it.
