Lincoln Center, Fathom Launch New Cinema Series With Spotlight on Dance Troupes

Lincoln Center and alternative bigscreen content distributor Fathom Events have partnered on a new series of performing arts programming, “Lincoln Center at the Movies,” an initiative that will launch this fall with a slate presenting the work of four U.S. dance companies in hundreds of cinemas around the country.

The move marks the latest expansion into digital cinema by a performing arts institution. One of the institutions located on the Lincoln Center campus, the Metropolitan Opera, helped blaze a trail into movie theaters with its popular “Live in HD” series, and the U.K.’s National Theater also has had notable success with both live and prerecorded cinemacasts of the company’s productions.

Performing arts programming tends to fare best in movie theaters when it hails from organizations with national or international name recognition, such as the Met and the National. Lincoln Center has the same kind of reach, thanks in part to “Live from Lincoln Center,” the 40-year-old television series that in recent seasons had broadcast live performances such as Tony-nominated play “The Nance” and the School of American Ballet’s “Curtain Up.”

“Lincoln Center at the Movies,” a bigscreen companion of sorts to “Live from Lincoln Center,” will eventually showcase all the art forms presented on the Lincoln Center campus. The exact companies and works to screen as part of the initial, dance-centric lineup, subtitled “Great American Dance,” have yet to be set.

“Lincoln Center at the Movies” kicks off this fall, with dates still to be nailed down.
