Manhattan’s first independent cinema for decades opened its doors in March. The brainchild of fashion designer Alexander Olch, Metrograph is located in the grungy Lower East Side opposite one of the area’s most famous picture houses: the long-closed Loew’s Canal Theatre.

It has a slightly stark New York feel but this is compensated by two screens showing archive-quality 35mm films and newer digital offerings, which punters watch from beautiful wooden seats (cushioned, fear not). Olch says that he wanted to create a “centre for film-lovers and a place to see movies and hang out”; be sure to sample the bookshop and Commissary restaurant.
