New Yorkers can celebrate the imminent arrival of two new art-house cinemas in a city that has long been underserved by movie theaters. Here are reports by indieWIRE and the the NYT on the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunn Munroe Film Center, which opens June 17 with Andrew Rossi’s film circuit doc Page One: Inside The New York Times (Magnolia).

Actually having to book films for the two screens inspired Film Society head Rose Kuo to hire indie film vet Bingham Ray as her first-run strategy consultant. (He will continue to consult for digital distributor SnagFilms.)

The 17,500 square foot Film Center is part of the 16-acre Lincoln Center campus redevelopment designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group, who collaborated with Diller Scofidio + Renfro on the exterior. There are two theaters, an amphitheater and a café.
