The Village East Cinema opened in 1926 as The Yiddish Art Theater in the heart of New York City’s Jewish Rialto district. Designed by prominent Brooklyn lawyer and Jewish community leader Louis Jaffe, the HISTORIC BUILDING was built as an elaborate, 1265 seat live theater for Yiddish theater pioneer Maurice Schwartz. The interior was designed in the Moorish Revival style that was popular in synagogues at the time, and included a forty-foot ornamental ceiling with a spectacular Star of David in the center that is still present today.Type your paragraph here.

In 1992, the theater was restored and converted into the Village East Cinema, a beautiful, seven-screen movie theater. Its sprawling, ornate MAIN AUDITORIUM features stadium and balcony seating as well as an oversized screen, and the theater remains one of New York City’s best places to see a film.

The upper and lower LOBBIES of the theater were beautifully renovated in 2006 and feature new concession stands and comfortable couches and lounge areas.

CONCESSION STAND stocked with fresh popcorn, cheesy nachos, Ben & Jerry's ice cream... everything you need for an evening at the movies!
