April 16, 2014: In support of the people of Boston, a city known for its strength as well as for excellence in the performing arts, Lincoln Center will host a free, live community viewing of the Boston Marathon this Monday, April 21, from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., on the 40-foot media wall in the Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium, located at Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets.  Doors will open at 8 a.m. and the race starts at 9:30 a.m. The ‘wichcraft café in the Atrium will offer a 10% discount for all food and beverage sold that day to any patron who says “Boston Strong” when they place their order.


Says Lincoln Center President Jed Bernstein, “Mindful of yesterday’s anniversary of the attacks during last year’s marathon, and in celebration of the spirit of the people of Boston, we invite New Yorkers to come and show their support while they have a coffee and watch this exciting event at our community space, the David Rubenstein Atrium.”


The screening will receive promotional support from New York Road Runners, the world’s premier community running organization.
