Film Society kicks off capital campaign

$37 million raised of a $41 million target

Film Society of Lincoln Center has raised $37 million of the $41 million target of its current capital campaign.

Tally was announced on the closing night of the Film Society’s New York Film Festival, which wrapped Sunday with Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter.” The public phase of the campaign, which kicked off Sunday, aims to raise the remaining $4 million following the $37 million on the books from the campaign’s private phase.

Capital campaign heads toward the finish line as the Film Society prepares to open its new facilities on the Lincoln Center campus, with a complex that will add two theaters to the Film Society’s roster. Also under construction are an amphitheater and cafe, among other features. Larger of the two theaters, which will seat 150, will be named the Francesca Beale Theater, execs said at the closing night gala.

In addition, Film Society announced Sidney Poitier will be feted at its upcoming 38th Chaplin Awards gala.
