The new wing fills an empty lot of Cornelia Street. It is designed of brick and glass, and blends in to the small scale character of this historic street without mimicking authentic elements. The new theaters increase the capacity of the IFC Center to a total of 948 seats and eleven screens, doubling the size of the building to 20,000 square feet. The lobby lounge looks out to Cornelia Street, while the main entrance of the theater remains on Sixth Avenue.
