Anthology Film Archives

In order to welcome audiences back safely at full capacity, and in light of the Delta variant, we’ll be requiring proof of vaccination for all our screenings for the time being – via vaccination cards (original or photo) or the Excelsior pass – and requiring that audience members wear masks at all times in the building. For those who are immunocompromised or are otherwise unable to obtain the vaccine, please contact us at 212-505-5181, ext. 15 to discuss alternate options.

Anthology’s complete COVID precautions, protocols, and guidelines are as follows:
• Proof of vaccination is required (vaccination cards – original or photo – or Excelsior Pass).
• Masks must be worn at all times, in the lobbies, theaters, and bathrooms. In accordance with CDC recommendations, this includes those who have received the COVID-19 vaccination.
• Our HVAC systems have been upgraded with MERV 13 filtration.
• All public spaces will be carefully cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.
• Hand-sanitizing stations will be available throughout the building.
• Walk-up tickets will be available, but we encourage audience members to purchase advance tickets online to limit interactions with box office staff, and to arrive no earlier than 20 minutes before screenings to avoid long lines. 
• All AFA staff members are fully vaccinated, and will wear masks at all times in public areas.
• If you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or other symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, please stay home. If you’ve bought tickets in advance, contact us at 212-505-5181, ext. 15 for a credit towards future screenings.

Anthology’s theaters do not have wheelchair designated seating, however there is space at the front, sides, and/or rear of the theaters that can accommodate wheelchairs. A ramp can be provided at the entrance to the building—whenever possible it is best to call ahead. The bathrooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible, but do not have wheelchair accessible stalls. As our upstairs theater and lobby are accessible via stairs only, please contact us if you think you’ll need assistance. Our theaters are not equipped with audio or visual aids. To contact the box office, please call 212-505-5181 x15

Anthology has launched a capital campaign to expand and upgrade our facilities, which will include an elevator and renovated bathrooms to make the entire building and facilities wheelchair accessible.
