Maysles Cinema

343 Lenox Ave.
New York, NY, 10027, United States
TEL: (212) 582-6050 ext. 207

If you are a fan of documentaries, the Maysles Cinema more than delivers. Founded by Albert Maysles, who with his late brother made non-fiction films like the classic Grey Gardens, this non-profit Harlem theatre shows only documentary films, each screening accompanied by a discussion forum where filmgoers can interact with the filmmaker. In addition to scheduled documentary programming and forums at least four nights a week, the theater hosts community-initiated arts and educational events to increase exposure for under-represented social interests and artists. A price of $10 general admission is suggested.

Insider Tip:

With only 30 seats, get there 15-20 minutes ahead of your screening time to increase your chances of getting one.
