Philadelphia’s smallest/coolest movie theater?

The fine folks over at Lansdowne’s Cinema 16:9 recently opened a new five-seat theater that they’ve christened The Lynx.  The room’s projection and sound are good, the seats are comfortable and aren’t too close to the screen (right on the edge), and the atmosphere is perfect if you visit with a group of four friends (having a stranger in the theater’s fifth seat may make for an uncomfortable experience).  I personally love it, I may love it as much as The Roxy, but you’re all familiar with my taste for the unusual and bizarre by now.  They’re currently hosting the Philadelphia engagement of Guy Maddin’s Keyhole, which is how I spent my birthday night this past Friday (I’m still trying to figure out if that was a birthday well spent or not).
