Robert Deniro and Jane Rosenthal pulled together the Tribeca Film Festival in May of 2002 to provide a venue for filmmakers to give back to the community. The festival happens every spring and has grown to include music and arts as well. It has been such a hit that The Tribeca Cinemas and Gallery has taken up the torch to provide entertainment in-between festivals.

“What we’re doing here at Tribeca Cinemas is really creating a year round cultural hub,” explains Jon Patricof of Tribeca Enterprises. The theater was originally a screening room they saved from destruction. It remains in almost the same state as it was originally in order to preserve the spiritof the venue. They’ve added a gallery upstairs, a drive-in movie theater and a restaurant next door for their various events and cultural creativities. Or, if you’re so inclined, plan your own event and rent out this spectacular space.
