In a second announcement, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has appointed veteran film executive Bingham Ray as the Film Center’s “first-run strategy consultant.” Ray will work with FSLC program director Richard Pena and the organization’s team to identify first-run arthouse titles for the Film Center throughout the year. The Film Center’s 17,500 square-foot venue will house two theaters, an amphitheater and a café. Both the 150-seat Francesca Beale Theater and the 90-seat Howard Gilman Theater will show new specialized film releases, with the Gilman also offering special programs. A 75-seat amphitheater, which contains a 152-inch Panasonic Plasma screen (the largest of its kind on public display in the country) will house lectures, panels and educational programs.
