New Plaza Cinema 2nd Anniversary Celebration:

Sunday, January 26, 2020

The Show Must Go On!!
We are very fortunate to be able to announce that our Anniversary Event on January 26 will take place at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space. It has been an emotional week with the realization of the flood damage done to our beloved NYIT theater as a result of the recent water main break on the UWS. It is our goal to persevere and continue to bring outstanding independent and foreign film programing to upper Manhattan. We will keep you posted on the details of a new temporary location as they unfold. Please see details for our Anniversary Event on January 26 below.

Thank you for sticking with us,

Norma Levy
Founder and President
New Plaza Cinema

We are pleased to invite you to celebrate with us our 2nd Anniversary event and screening of “Cinema Paradiso” at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space, 95th & Broadway, a beloved award-winning Italian film with uncanny relevance to recent events affecting New Plaza.

Join us and our growing community of supporters

All ticket holders who pay $30 or more will be treated to the award winning Italian film Cinema Paradiso, It will be followed by a post film Q&A led by three time Emmy winner Sara Lukinson, an expert in Italian Cinema. Employed by the Kennedy Center for 30 years and teaching Italian cinema  at NYU in 2020, Ms. Lukinson is a compelling speaker and we can’t wait for you to meet her. Following the Q&A, you will have an opportunity to enjoy a special wine, cheese and dessert event.

The times are:
6:30 Cinema Paradiso Screening
8:30 Post Show Discussion
9:15 Wine, Cheese and Dessert Event

For those supporters who donate $100 or more, in addition to the above, we will provide a special pre-film Champagne event at 5:30pm to celebrate our second anniversary. There, we will offer you a Champagne toast to New Plaza Cinema, a platter of light sandwiches, and a gift bag. You will also have the privilege of hearing from Toby Talbot, the former operator of Lincoln Plaza Cinemas with her husband Dan. Toby has been working with and promoting New Plaza from the beginning and we are grateful for her support.  You will also hear from Father Marc Vicari, who will speak about the small town in Italy where Cinema Paradiso was filmed and its effect on that town. And you will receive raffle tickets with prizes including a special poster donated by Toby Talbot of an early Agnes Varda film called Lions Love, a film projector, and many other fun items.
