COVID-19 Update

IFC Center is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

While we await news from the state and city on when NYC movie theaters can reopen, our team is working behind the scenes to make sure IFC Center is in great shape for the day we can welcome moviegoers back.

We’ll send out updates via our email newsletter, website and social media channels as soon as we have more information to share.

In the meantime, we’ve made some of our programming available online. Our documentary festival DOC NYC  has launched Friday Fix, a free interview show with documentary filmmakers every other week, and is also offering online classes about all aspects of documentary making. You can check out a selection of short films made by current and former IFC Center staff on our website. Several movies we were planning to play on our screens this spring and summer–RELIC, THE TRUTH, THE TRIP TO GREECE, THE PAINTED BIRD and more– are now available to watch from home. And you can catch up with hundreds of IFC Center hits on our sister company’s streaming service, IFC Films Unlimited.

A special thanks to IFC Center members for their ongoing support. We’ve extended the duration of all memberships for the length of the closure, so there will be no time lost on any membership. 

If you have any questions about rescheduled events or film openings or other IFC Center matters, please email

Keep safe and be well, and we look forward to seeing you at the movies soon.

– The IFC Center Team
