"Movies at the Palace" take place at the stunning United Palace, formerly the Loew's 175th Street Theatre which first opened as a deluxe movie theatre and vaudeville house in 1930. We honor that past while reinventing the movie-going experience by pairing classic titles with pre-show entertainment and expert Q&A’s. Movies at the Palace is supported by The Miranda Family Fund. See the entire schedule HERE.
Founded in 2010, Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao. That's why they make every bar from scratch with unroasted cacao beans, sourced from growers they trust from Dominican Republic, Peru, and Tanzania.
