Elinor Bunin Munroe
Film Center

A state-of-the-art multi-screen theater and cultural venue that opened in 2011, designed by award-winning architect David Rockwell. The opening of the Film Center marks Film at Lincoln Center’s expansion to two  venues on the Lincoln Center campus. Located at sidewalk level on the south side of West 65th Street, the building is home to three pristine theaters—the 140-seat Francesca Beale Theater, the 85-seat Howard Gilman Theater, and the intimate 75-seat Amphitheater, featuring the world's largest plasma screen—and indie food and wine café featuring a delicious menu of Italian-inspired fare to be enjoyed in a cool, casual dining environment.
