This venerable art house has been around for decades and is virtually the last of the old Village independent cinemas that flourished during the 1960’s, 1970’s, and 1980’s. It was opened on October 5, 1964 with Bibi Andersson in “All These Women”. It had 310 seats and was a conversion of a former fire station, to the plans of architect Alexander Zamshnick.
After several tough years, on March 5, 1999 the theater was expanded into three screens and has continued its tradition of showing independent, foreign, and classic films.
The Cinema Village evokes a different era when "independent" really meant it.
