The Film Society of Lincoln Center is dedicated to the continuing development and presentation of film and to teaching audiences more about this liveliest of arts through exhibition programs, publications and outreach activities. The Film Society's objectives include demonstrating the range and breadth of film and video, attracting audiences from broad segments of the community and providing talented artists from diverse backgrounds a meaningful venue in which to introduce their work to a wider public.


Every Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm, the theater hosts Movies for Kids. Films such as Black Beauty, All Things Bright and Beautiful and the original 1946 version of Beauty and the Beast will delight young moviegoers, as well as moms and dads.

Reel to Real for Kids, presented in collaboration with Lincoln Center, is a Saturday-at-the-movies experience combining classic films from the 1920s to the 1990s with exciting live performances. This series for parents and youngsters alike takes place the last Saturday of each month at the Walter Reade Theater. Foreign language films have English subtitles.
