The Caffe Cino: Greenwich Village’s Countercultural Landmark
A lecture and discussion with Christine Karatnytsky

Opening without a license in 1958 at 31 Cornelia Street and run on less than a shoestring budget through the height of the turbulent 1960s, the fabled Caffe Cino was Off-Off Broadway’s first continuous theatre and fostered the evolution of a vibrant gay and alternative theatre movement. Christine Karatnytsky, Scripts Librarian in The Billy Rose Theatre Division of The New York Public Library, will discuss the history of The Cino and how it has been remembered as an integral part of Greenwich Village’s legacy to the arts.
