Film Society Of Lincoln Center Gets A New Home
By: Stephanie Simon
The Film Society of Lincoln Center was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international cinema and support new filmmakers, and now it is celebrating the opening of a brand new facility and a whole new look on 65th Street. NY1’s Arts reporter Stephanie Simon filed the following report.
As Lincoln Center continues to renovate and remake its campus, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is no longer a coming attraction. With a ribbon cutting, philanthropist Elinor Bunin Munroe opened the new facility which bares her name. Until now, the Film Society just had space across the street at the Walter Reade Theater.
The main entrance leads to an amphitheater that is open to the public all day long. Architect David Rockwell calls it the “Living Room” of Lincoln Center.
