New Plaza Cinema is Hopeful of Future

  Last modified on September 15th, 2021

New Plaza Cinema recently sent out an email stating that, despite the recent Lincoln Center area floods which caused damage to the NYIT theater, they’ll soon be showing films at other Upper West Side venues. This message is also displayed on the home page of their website.

The group hasn’t yet disclosed which theaters they’ll be filming at, but they have had past partnerships with the JCC and Symphony Space.

Two weeks after the flooding, lots of support was present at New Plaza Cinema’s second anniversary celebration, which took place at Symphony Space. It was attended by 450 supporters.

New Plaza Cinema’s message was concluded by stating they’ve been offered the right to show films under certain terms and conditions at two other UWS venues.

We’ll update you once we know which venues the group will be partnering with, and once we have a schedule of upcoming films!

New Plaza Cinema was launched two years ago by Norma Levy, a long-time patron of Lincoln Plaza Cinema. The organization aims “to find a permanent space on the Upper West Side to create and operate a not-for-profit neighborhood cinema devoted to quality independent and foreign films.”
