New Plaza Cinemas operating its pop-up showcase for independent movies again on Saturday, June 1st — UWS, NYC

Those of us who love independent and small movies grieved when the landlord required the Lincoln Plaza Cinema at W 62nd Street and Broadway to close. This neighborhood is activist tho, and the New Plaza Cinema (which doesn’t yet have a permanent home) is regularly showing movies at the NY Institute of Technology auditorium between W 61st and W 62nd Streets on Broadway.

Four movies will be shown on each of Saturday, June 1st; and Sunday, June 2nd. Saturday’s showings are:

1:00 pm – Apollo 11

3:00 pm – The Mustang

5:15 pm – Hotel Mumbai

7:45 pm – They Shall Not Grow Old

Full descriptions of the movies, including trailers, can be found at  I recommend buying tickets online as the box office accepts only cash and opens only 20 minutes before the movie. (This is a non-profit, volunteer organization.) I’ll be going to one/ maybe two of the shows.

Altho listings can now be found on Fandango, tickets must be purchased online at
