The Anthology Film Archives, is a cultural and architectural landmark. The building was purchased from the City of New York by Anthology in 1979 and adapted for reuse, opening its doors in 1989 as a screening venue and repository of avant-garde, independent and classic cinema. 

Originally designed by the late architect Raimund Abraham, (-with Kevin Bone and Joseph Levine), Anthology was built with theaters, film vaults, film restoration areas, offices, and a library and gallery. A new transformation of Anthology Film Archives, now in progress, is critical for the mission of Anthology and its long-term stability. This work includes important infrastructure upgrading, accessibility, and additional space. Anthology’s courthouse building will expand from 20,000 to 32,000 square feet with important modernized physical facilities. Anthology Film Archives remains key to the artistic vitality of New York City’s East Village.
