Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center

Film at Lincoln Center’s landmark state-of-the-art Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, located at 144 West 65th St., is a multi-screen theater and cultural venue that opened to the public in the heart of Lincoln Center’s campus in June of 2011.

The Film Center, named after the late Film at Lincoln Center board member, and award-winning filmmaker and designer Elinor Bunin Munroe, was part of the 16-acre Lincoln Center campus redevelopment and designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group who also collaborated with Diller Scofidio + Renfro on the exterior. The 17,500 square foot venue houses two theaters, an amphitheater, and a café. The 144-seat Francesca Beale Theater shows specialty film releases, and the 85-seat Howard Gilman Theater screens a combination of new film releases and special programs. The Amphitheater, with a 152” Panasonic Plasma screen (the largest of its kind on public display in the country) houses lectures, panels and educational programs. An ATM is available in the lobby.
