I put together this short list for my documentary and experimental video students.  It’s a list of smaller movie theaters in New York City where you can see documentary, experimental and independent film and video or other innovative film programming.  For the most part, it doesn’t list festivals.  I’m sure it’s not exhaustive, so feel free to add other theaters/spaces you know in the comments.

I’m posting here in case anyone else is interested.  Please feel free to share with your NY friends or use as a resource if you live here or plan to visit.  (Thanks to Nathan Kensinger for helping me put this together.)
