The IFC Center, NYC’s ultimate entertainment space for New Yorkers seeking out the best in independent film, opened in June 2005 in the historic Waverly Theater. After a four-year renovation, the new complex features three state-of-the-art cinemas with luxurious seating and high-definition digital 35 mm projection. Expect an array of genres: new independent, foreign, and documentary features, weekend classics (every weekend at noon), Waverly Midnights (cult movies every Friday and Saturday night at midnight), and Short Attention Span Cinema (short films screening before every feature)—all with no commercials on the screens. The West Village venue also features The Waverly at IFC Center (a Great Performances restaurant that serves lunch, dinner, and snacks, and features a full bar) and Posteritati Gallery at IFC Center (exhibitions of vintage movie posters from around the globe).
