When you’re ready for that rare break from Harlem, on October 7th, iPic Entertainment will unveil its first New York City location at the Seaport District. The luxury theater will open its doors in the Fulton Market Building located at 11 Fulton Street.
The chic cinema features eight screens and The Tuck Room, a cocktail bar that pays homage to New York’s rich cocktail history. iPic moviegoers can recline in oversized leather chairs with unlimited popcorn, pillows and blankets, while being waited on by ninja-like servers. Signature dishes are created by acclaimed chef Sherry Yard, three-time James Beard Award winner and former executive partner and chef with Wolfgang Puck’s empire for nearly 20 years. Moviegoers can also enjoy signature, farm-to-glass cocktails by renowned mixologist Adam Seger.
The new theater also includes iPic-designed proprietary seating, including “Premium Plus Seating Pods” and “Premium Chaise Lounges,” which provide a new level of intimacy and technology in luxury, movie-watching comfort. iPic also streamlines the entire guest experience through a proprietary iPic Theaters app that allows guests to purchase tickets and order food and beverages ahead of time via their smartphones.
iPic’s Lower Manhattan debut coincides with continuing progress toward the grand opening of the Seaport District. The Howard Hughes Corporation is striving to create a unique destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike. The overall development plan encompasses a total of seven buildings on several city blocks, including Pier 17® and the Fulton Market Building. The Fulton Market Building, which will house IPic, now contains the only Smorgasburg outpost in Manhattan. An array of notable restaurateurs plan to open eateries in the Seaport District, including acclaimed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, chef David Chang of Momofuku Group and by CHLOE. Milan-based concept store 10 CORSO COMO has also selected the Seaport for its first location in North America. Other future tenants include McNally Jackson Books and Amsterdam Couture retailer Scotch & Soda.
