The Jacob Burns Film Center Theater is on the site of the former Rome Theater at 364 Manville Road in Pleasantville, NY. The original 1925 theater was renovated and expanded in 2001 to create an 18,500 square foot, state-of-the-art facility with three theaters.


Theater 1

Within the walls of the original building is the largest theater with 250 seats, a stage and adjustable acoustics suitable for live events such as music recitals, readings, lectures, and panel discussions.


Theater 3

In the new wing, a more intimate theater with 136 seats (Theater 2) and a 70-seat screening room (Theater 3) provide the flexibility to show a broad range of films appealing to audiences of differing sizes. This extensive programming translates into longer runs of current art films as well as films tailored to special interests for every age.
