Jacob Burns Film Center is mixing the old with the new with its latest renovations and upgrades.
"Over the summer months, the Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC) has completed renovations and major lighting improvements to its façade, three theaters, lobby and common areas," the Pleasantville-based non-profit said in a press release.
As seen in the above before and after photos, the façade of the Manville Road theater "involved cleaning, repair and restoration to the joints between the terra cotta pieces and the faces of the terra cotta blocks as well as repairs to the original window on the third floor."
The 1925 building's appearance is now more similar to its original façade "and maintains the highest standards of historic preservation," according to the press release.
Indoors, a grant from Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan allowed JBFC to renovate its lighting system and install LED technology.
"This project underscores JBFC’s commitment to sustainable construction and building practices, as outlined by The United States Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Program," the statement said.
