Re-Opening ad April 14 after a soft opening the week before.

Opened on October 18, 1972, the 500-seat art house Quad Cinema was Manhattan’s first four-screen theatre and is now one of the oldest independent theaters in the city. It still remains a vibrant center for art house films.

It was closed in May 2015 for renovation and reopened April 7, 2017.

Please update previous owners: Golden and City Cinemas. Lesser Theatre Services is a film booking company and never own this theatre at all.
