The IFC Center has plans to double in size, pending approval from the community board's Landmarks Preservation Committee scheduled to meet tonight.

If all goes according to IFC's plans, the Greenwich Village indie theater will expand from 480 to 940 seats and increase its screens from five to 11. The expansion would mean the theater would overtake a lot on Cornelia Street, which has been owned by the theater since 1985 and stood vacant for decades.

Two of the screens would be added in the basement, two on the second floor and two more on the third. In total, the theater would grow from 10,000 to 20,000 feet.

According to the theater's PR firm, the main entrance will remain on 6th Avenue to "minimize impact on the neighborhood," and will feature an expanded lobby to prevent line-waiters from taking over the sidewalk.

The theater, located at 323 6th Avenue, filed permits for the expansion in August. According to New York YIMBY, the theater last expanded from three to five screens in 2009.
