The Trylon Microcinema
Taking the Trylon microcinema into the 21st century!



TRYLON has begun fundraising for a 2017 proposal to expand our auditorium from 50 to 100 seats while also expanding and renovating our lobby. With more seats, we can bring in more speakers, live music performers, and hard-to-get 35mm film prints. The project includes a new cinema entrance on 33rd Street, with better signage and an outdoor courtyard area for post-movie socializing (and outdoor movies!). The auditorium renovation will also include an entrance at floor level, providing better access to our expanded wheelchair-seating spaces.

Our fundraising campaign is already off to a solid start. So far in 2016, we've raised $10,000 to replace our existing (50) seats. With that money, several grants that will apply to this project, and a negotiated build-out contribution from the building's owner when we renew our lease for 10 years, we're well on our way to reaching our aims.
