The Walter Reade Theater opened on December 3, 1991. The facility is programmed and managed by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The programs here are an impressive wide-ranging amalgam of revived classics, festivals of new films from various nations, movie-series dedicated to specific directors and actors and other artists.
The auditorium is also used as an adjunct venue for the annual New York Film Festival, most of which takes place in nearby Alice Tully Hall, located down below on Broadway. A film-buff’s paradise-on-earth, the programs here rival those of the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Forum elsewhere in Manhattan.
The state-of-the-art theater is fully equipped to show all film formats and aspect ratios with appropriate masking. As of 2012, the screen size is 32 x 18 feet. A monthly booklet lists all the upcoming programs in concise detail.
The Walter Reade Theater is located on the Plaza level of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and is adjacent to the Julliard School of Music and a short hop from Avery Fisher Hall, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York State Theatre, and other facilities at Lincoln Center.
