New Movie Theaters Open at Lincoln Center
Thursday, June 16, 2011
On Friday, a new film center opens at Lincoln Center. The first movie to be screened at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, which sits at 144 W. 65th St. in the Lincoln Center Plaza, will be Andrew Rossi's "Page One: Inside The New York Times." Movie tickets cost $13 for adults, $9 for students, seniors and children and $8 for Lincoln Center Film Society members.
The 17,500 square foot center seats 144 people in the Francesca Beale Theater and 87 people in the Howard Gilman Theater. The center also houses an 87-seat ampitheatre and a cafe.
David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group designed the building with Diller Scofidio + Renfro. It's named for Elinor Bunin Munroe, a Film Society board member, filmmaker and designer.
Here's the trailer for "Page One." The film will play on both of the theater's screens.
