Maysles Cinema

Map & Directions 343 Lenox Ave./Malcolm X Blvd.
New York, NY 10027


Merchant's Description

The Cinema at the Maysles Documentary Center, the only independent film house north of Lincoln Center in Manhattan, is dedicated to the exhibition of documentary films, and it provides programming and forum discussions at least four nights out of every week. The Cinema is committed to a democratic experience, one where filmmakers are asked to attend the screenings of their work, and audiences have the opportunity to actively engage the films and each other in post-screening forums. Coupled with its scheduled series, we encourage the programming participation of local social and cultural organizations and citizen-activists to deepen community involvement and provide exposure for under-represented social issues and overlooked artists and their work. We have forged partnerships with organizations as diverse as The National Black Programming Consortium, the New Museum, and the Harlem Historic Parks Association, to name a few. Our suggested-donation ticket model allows for everyone to engage in our programming, regardless of his or her ability to pay. As a result of steady growth in attendance we have recently added capacity to accommodate our frequent overflow audiences.

  • PHOTO: Down the street at 351 Lenox Ave was the headquarters for an illegal gambling racket! Check out this historic pic from 1938 at the link!

    A film center showing great documentary films you're not likely going to see anywhere else.

    Great theatre for documentary and the staff is great

  • Harlem A. on 01/08/13

    If it's on film, at some point, it will be shown here. Lots of festivals and talks. Comfy and hip. Nice to mingle without festival 'tude. First Mondays are known for all the above, cheese, and wine.
