The Film Forum was formed in 1970 and has been at its current location since 1989.

One of New York City’s BEST theaters. Shows independent and revival films. Has many film festivals. Highlights have included an Ealing film retrospective, Varda retrospective. Looks retro in the front.

Wish my scheduling had worked out for this round of Bill Castle’s films. I went last time and had a blast,er, buzz at the screenings.

Thanks Tim. “The Tingler” was digital and “Homicidal” was 35mm. I just checked the website and was amazed at this months line up of horror/sci-fi classics. Even “Village of the Damned”(1960) is scheduled. Time to vacation in NY for the next two weeks.

Praise and a heart-felt thank-you to Film Forum for bring back The “Sci-Fi Festival” this year. I hope it was a big money-maker for you. Love to see this come back every summer, again.

This theater is prominently featured in first part of the new film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” The auditorium shots may have been filmed in a studio, though.

The ticket stub wasn’t from the Film forum

The discussion between Ryan and his girl friend was about the Film Forum. The marquee also appears in an early scene.

I read in the NYT that this theater has 4k projection.

it also is mentioned in the schedule of the movies that play there, this fine fine theatre was one of the early adopters to 4K.

Programing is great here but the theaters have small screens and extremely uncomfortable seating.

At least for this 6'3" person, I find the seats comfortable enough, if not up to stadium seat standards. The screens are relatively small, but the projection is consistently high quality. And no 10 minute stream of ads before the movies. And top-notch baked goods and popcorn and coffee beverages.
