New Plaza Cinema Has a New Home in Lincoln Square

New Plaza Cinema has had quite the journey back to Lincoln Square, but we are so excited to hear that it will be moving back to our neighborhood! 

New Plaza Cinema has formed a partnership with Macaulay Honors College of the City University of New York at 35 West 67th Street and will now show independent, foreign, and classic films in the school’s 72-seat screening room starting on September 30th. The opening lineup includes The Good Boss, Fire of Love, Three Minutes: A Lengthening, Taming the Garden, Hold Me Tight, and 1982Tickets are already on sale, and all showings take place on weekends. The organization also offers lectures and talkbacks.

After Lincoln Plaza Cinemas on 63rd Street closed in 2018, a group of local movie lovers founded New Plaza Cinema. The former theater, which was open for 37 years, showed art-house films. After the formation of New Plaza Cinema, showings took place in the JCC, Symphony Space, NYIT, and most recently, the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew at 86th Street. Finding this new space in Lincoln Square is the result of the determination of Norma Levy and her colleagues, who faced so many hurdles over the past few years since the non-profits’ inception.
