When Lincoln Plaza Cinemas closed on Jan. 28 after losing its lease, the Upper West Side of Manhattan mourned a beloved cultural landmark and the neighborhood’s only independent art theater. Now a film-loving group of volunteers has incorporated as New Plaza Cinema to carry on Lincoln Plaza’s legacy. New Plaza has begun seeking a site for a new theater. But it needs your help. Please consider contributing your time, money or skills. To volunteer, please fill out this contact form and tell us what you have to offer.
As a start-up, we have certain immediate expenses – for example, to retain counsel to incorporate the Coalition, and to implement PR and fund-raising efforts. These initial costs are modest compared to the investor funds we will ultimately need, and we are relying on our members and the public to help. Please give whatever you can.
