REVIEWS OF Film at Lincoln Center - Walter Reade Theater IN New York

Samuel Howard

Movies here are serious events. Get there early because it's likely that they will sell out and they may give up your seat to the standby line or make you sit on a bench in the back.

Stephan Grütering

I really love this place. BECAUSE they Show really artsy movie, have wonderfull Festivals, like the yewish Film Festival. .

Stephen DiLauro

Part of Lincoln Center, and if you're a film buff, or cinephile, you really should get on their mailing list, even if you're from out of town. The film society there hosts the New York Film Festival and more. There are all sorts of themes that are explored, and screenings of rare gems, like Bunel's "Exterminating Angel" ( in conjunction with a new opera based on film).

Great theatre. Was recently refurbished and the seats are very comfortable. The pricing for the food is a bit too expensive.

small,but clean and nice

Lovely place

Maria Plochocki

Always worth visiting for quality cinema to be shared with other film lovers! A couple of downsides/ caveats: They can run behind schedule, with films starting quite a bit later than announced; Some patrons are not as well-mannered; Some concessions are seriously overpriced ($7 For a small cappuccino!)

Intimate theater excellent for screenings and Q&A afterwards. This theater seats plenty and offers comfortable seating as well.

Randolfo Arias Torres

Fantastic. Love the ambience.

Frank Salinas

Always enjoyable experience at Walter Reade Theater. Went to a number of films during the annual Asian Film Festival on multiple nights and really had a good time. The theater is a good size, not too big or small, and the seats are comfortable even when viewing movies back to back. Concession stand is available with prices comparable to other theaters. Being part of Lincoln Center makes the location a plus as well.

A small, cozy theater with comfortable seats. There are a lot of interesting film programs offered here by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. There is a small concessions stand that carries the basics (popcorn and candy), but also ice cream sandwiches from melt!

Steven Smith

Great theater for art house films

Moriah Seale

Jim R. Moore

New screen and great films!

Ashley Hiatt

Love this theater. Always feels like a place where movies will matter. People not on their phones texting.

Hanqing Zhang

Richard Lawrence

Love the Walter Reade. Big screen. Comfy seats.

G Aquino

Pleased with all the films we've seen here so far. Theater is just the right size and doesn't feel too crowded even when it's near capacity. My biggest complaint is the men's restroom. The sinks and urinals are literally just inches across from each other, thus making for a very uncomfortable, elbow-bumping experience when there's other people around.

GuangWei Too


Great choice of movies, friendly staff, comfortable seats.

Maja Hazard

Steve Bookman

One of the western world's most noteworthy centers for the discovery and appreciation of worthwhile cinema.

Sara Pinotti

Gostei muito! Era um filme bem alternativo, exibido em Cannes. Sobre a cultura indigena. Lugar confortável e legal. Infelizmente a calçada estava em obras e o acesso ficou um pouco escondido. Mas valeu a visita! Pelo lugar e pelo filme!

Gustav Erlank

Melanie Wesslock

Wonderful treasure of a theater with interesting films.

I love the diversity of the programming at this theater and Film Society. I have laughed, cried, been swept away, blown away, angry and sad and happy at this theater. Not ONE bad seat in the house and seriously one of the few theaters in town where you can tolerate dealing with a respectful movie audience.

Toby Horn

Comfortable inviting theater with great sound. E Viewable from every seat. Great popcorn. Wonderful experience.


An intimate theater for movies, but not so great for recitals in terms of its acoustics. A spacious lounge space nears the entrance. Restrooms are very cramped. Great accessibility with escalators connecting to the street level.

Good movies, comfortable seats!

Aydin Baltaci

I watched the movie 'Non Fiction' which is an intellectual dialog on print world of literature vs digital publishing and dynamics of both sides as well as it effect on people and life. While going through these dialogs we also get a second layer by joining to the intimate lives of the characters from publisher to writer from broadcasters to politicians. If you are an insider of these dynamics involved or observer for the last 20 year's movie doesn't have much to offer accept if you enjoy some humorous love triangles. Movie theater is clean and pleasant. Often used for movie festivals. Membership is available and supplies 33 percent discounts on tickets.

Dan Nasta

One of the best spaces for watching film still standing in NYC.

Danny Balgley

Charles Li

Just amazing.

Jordan Eudy

They show some really neat movies here. Sometimes they'll even have directors or actors stop by to talk about the movie that's playing. The film festival is great, too. Definitely a must-visit if you're into movies.

Nikolay Koshelev

Great programming!

Albert Rubinshteyn

It is a small screen, often being full to the capacity. But where else you will enjoy French cinema or Italian comedy.

James Werick

clark frederick

Best repertory sightlines and screen

Carl Adams

For the community service and it's Juliard School neighbor, the film center at Lincoln Center is just great. The WRT itself is well maintained and clean, but it is a bit worn and dated. Seats and ammenities are fine; audience patrons can be quirky, bothersome, self-indulgent and very senior (but spunky).

(Translated by Google) a small cinema (not so much then!) comfortable armchairs really relaxing atmosphere. We were for an 80s movie review :) (Original) un piccolo cinema (mica tanto poi!) poltrone comodissime atmosfera davvero rilassante. Siamo state per una rassegna movie anni 80 :)

Michael Champion

Amazing to be there for the US premier of Honeyman, a great doco. And to meet the directors.

Hugh Breyer

It's a space where I'll never see any Trumps.
