Get Geeky While Comic Book Browsing, Then See A Cheap Movie In Bay Ridge
Go back in time to the old school neighborhood comic book shop of your parents' childhood at Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge. Browse the racks for new releases, or hunker down and flip through the many boxes of $1 backlist comics lining the walls—you never know what gems you might find. There are also some books and collectibles for sale. Know that whatever you purchase, they give a back and sleeve with every comic. But the most unique part? There's a cute store cat overseeing the whole operation.
When you pay for your finds, buy some candy from the selection at the front of the store to sneak into the movie theater, Alpine Cinema, next door. This 8-theater multiplex offers a decent selection of new movies for a cheaper ticket price than the Manhattan chains (the adult matinee is only $7!). Be ready for a boisterous crowd and a generally spirited experience. Definitely a solid night out in the neighborhood.
