Screenings and events in the 46th New York Film Festival take place in several locations. Due to the ongoing renovations at Alice Tully Hall, the majority of this year's screenings will be held at the Ziegfeld Theatre, 141 West 54th St. The 1969 building, a few hundred feet from the original theater, was one
of the last large movie palaces built in New York. It remains one of the city's foremost venues, for its comfortable seating, large screen and current technology. The Film Society is delighted to bring this year’s New York Film Festival to this exceptional theater.
Please note: the Ziegfeld Theatre is NOT wheelchair accessible. For further information call (212)875-5610.
