REVIEWS OF Film at Lincoln Center - Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center IN New York

Mike H.

The most comfortable theaters in town. The new releases are well curated, and their festivals are even better. And as others have mentioned, the concessions are excellent. Overall, an under-appreciated gem of the Upper West Side.

Just saw the movie Jane today and it was a pleasant experience. We arrived about 15 minutes early and got great seats. It got packed so definitely arrive a little early! They also have a cute little cafe with different breakfast, lunch and dessert options. You can bring your snacks into the theater which is always a plus.

Very nice and quiet cinema in the UWS. There is only one screen room and the movies are not blockbusters.

The Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center is a very modern, nicely appointed collection of theaters. It contains three: the Francesca Beale Theater (142 seats), Howard Gilman (85 seats) and the Amphitheater (75 seats). I've attended countless Q&As with directors like Brian De Palma, Jon Favreau, and Nicolas Winding Refn in the Amphitheater. It says it seats 75 people, but since it's bench seating that can vary a lot. It becomes problematic when people get a little too comfortable with their purses. That's what laps are for people. The risers are high to accommodate the back padding of the bench, so not even the tallest giant will obstruct your view. But the bottom padding is quite thin. The Q&As aren't all that long so it's bearable. I would suggest getting their an hour early at the very least for popular talks because seating is so limited.

Pro tip: Light from the projection room in the back gets reflected in 3d glasses making watching 3d movie uncomfortable. Take back rows for 3d movies.

Went to see a movie midday on a trip to NY. It's a two screen place, showing indies, at least when I was there. There is a coffee shop/ restaurant that shares a lobby and a small concessions stand. The theater itself was ok, The seat I was in could have used some new padding but as the movie got going I forgot all about it.

Dashon Burton

Absolutely wonderful films.

Carlvin Sanon

Great movies and a very nice theater inside. Wished it had the recliner seats but that's an unnecessary luxury.

Love the small theaters that screen independent films produced from all around the world. The seats are comfortable. I do love that I can walk up and buy a ticket in cash and not charged a convenience fee. Sometimes it pays to be old school! ❤

Howard Meyer

Funky locale. Great films and coffee.

Miguel Falquez

Intimate atmosphere. Comfortable seating. The best places for interesting, independent films.

Jere Hunt

Beautiful, intimate theaters that show incredible indie films.

G Aquino

Modern theater and friendly staff, but what makes this place truly special is its continuing support for foreign language films, many by independent filmmakers and small production companies. The lineup during a recent visit includes films from South Korea, France, and Burkina Faso (part of a week-long African Film Festival). They also try to invite directors to interact with the audience after the film. If you’re tired of the usual Hollywood fare, definitely give this place a try.

A great theater venue anchored that is part of the Lincoln Center complex. The facility is beautifully designed, and the auditoriums are comfortable. A delightful experience!

it is a small theater with modern design. it only has two screens, so there are not many movies on. BUT, this theater is a popular one. in my opinion, it is because the movies they picked are great. When you are watching the movies, you would think about some questions, for exmples, what the movie want to tell me, why it happen? the movies do not have special effect, or have a lot of movie stars in their cast, but all of them are imressive. i watched all movies are on this cinema, and i love them. here are some suggestion if you are going to this theater. they are nonprofit cinema, so they dont play tons of movie trial after the schedule. make sure you come on time. second, most of people love fifth row, but i think fourth row is the perfect row.

I saw Cold War here. Nice theatre with a bistro bar and restaurant next door. Mostly foreign/indie fare here.

lew krash

Good movies terrific facility

Vernon Trotter

Went to see the movie with Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes last night that was reviewed in the Times. Something about the director was being shown instead with the same name. A classic screw up. They blamed their marketing department. Didn't even say sorry.

Loved it. If you are into art house movies you have to watch something during your visit to NYC.

Kyle Stewart

Very modern, clean, good looking theatre with art movies, and non genre movies. The merch area is hard to notice though. There is food and drinks. Takes movie pass. Seats and viewing quality is good too. There was one time I sat in a seat, where the light from the projector area came in and was annoying cause I wanted more darkness, that should be looked into.

Great documentary Mr. Soul. Took me back to my childhood.

Beautiful theatre, great programming and the wine bar by the embrace is a gem. I've been to a few screenings recently and a far more pleasant experience than going to basic movie theater. Films offered in a broad range of topics and wonderfully entertaining.

Now that Lincoln Plaza movie theater closed down, this is the only place to see indie and foreign movies that don't have wide release. Seats are pretty comfortable. The feature presentations start right on the dot, so don't be late!

Nice small theatre. Services are pretty limited, but that just makes it about the movie, not munching popcorn.

I don't like the way this theater does business (they have a very strict policy re: refunds and exchanges: there are none), and I found the manager to be rude and uncooperative. Also, I was told by the woman at the box office that I could exchange a ticket that I had unnecessarily purchased at the box office and then when I tried to exchange it I was told that I could not exchange that ticket. This miscommunication was obviously frustrating; it gave me the impression that the theater bends the rule for some people, but not for everyone.

Raghav Saboo

Great place to see some of the less mainstream movies.

Paul Asjes

Great architecture. Great art film selection.

I've been there to view several Independent films and for some events. Place is nice and always organized. The staff is wonderful. It's Lincoln Center what do you expect
