About The Film Forum

Film Forum began in 1970 as an alternative screening space for independent films, with 50 folding chairs, one projector and a $19,000 annual budget. Karen Cooper became director in 1972 and under her leadership, Film Forum moved downtown to the Vandam Theater in 1975. In 1980, Cooper led the construction of a twin cinema on Watts Street. In 1989, when the Watts Street cinema was demolished by developers, Film Forum’s current Houston Street cinema was built at a cost of $3.2 million. Today, Film Forum is a 3-screen cinema open 365 days a year, with 250,000 annual admissions, 489 seats, 60 employees (of which 22 are full time), 5000 members and a $5 million operating budget. Approximately 77% of our budget is spent directly on programs.
