FILM FORUM small is beautiful

Film Forum needs your help to keep independent film accessible and to show movies to a younger generation— as well as to older audiences who may recall the time they first saw Fred and Ginger dance, Orson Welles glower, or the Beatles sing She Loves You.

This summer, we renovated and expanded to 4 screens. Today, we have better seating, improved sightlines, and the capacity to play more movies than ever.

Please consider making a 100% Tax-deductible gift to small is beautiful.
