Public Theater (Official)
Previous Names: Anthology Film Archives, Little Theatre at the Public
From about the late-1970’s until the 1990’s, the Little Theatre at the Public Theatre had one of Manhattan’s most imaginative movie schedules. The daily shows in the tiny auditorium included off-beat new films, forgotten older works, and special series of films.
Film programmer Fabiano Canosa brought quality films here for well over two decades. Originally the cinema was created by Anthology Film Archives, with seats that included high partition-like sides, to avoid being distracted by anything around you and enabling full concentration on the movie.
Today the Public Theater building houses five performance spaces:Newman Stage (proscenium stage - 299 seats), Anspacher Stage (thrust stage - 275 seats), Shiva (black box - 99 seats), Martinson (set black box - 199 seats), Luesther Hall (loft - 160 seats).
