ASTORIA — Museum of the Moving Image celebrates its grand reopening in style as it unveils a special series of film screenings and events throughout the month of February. After a three-year renovation, Moving Image has re-emerged as an epicenter of film, television and digital media, featuring a new 267-seat theater, 68-seat screening room, a new gallery for special exhibitions and multiple screening spaces for video art. To mark this occasion, NYC & Company, the City’s official marketing and tourism organization, has named Museum of the Moving Image the Culture Spot for February. As part of the Culture Spot designation, the museum will offer two-for-one savings on admission throughout the month.
Rochelle Slovin, founding director of Museum of the Moving Image, said, “There is something for everyone during the opening celebrations for Museum of the Moving Image—from connoisseurs of classic cinema to fans of video games and current TV, from children and their families to New York’s new-media artists. We welcome audiences from all around New York and all around the world to our transformed museum, which has been so brilliantly designed by Thomas Leeser.”
The discount admission coupon will be available during the entire month at NYC Information Centers in Midtown and Times Square and at the NYC Information Kiosks in Harlem, Chinatown and City Hall. Coupons and additional details about the special offer will also be available at nycgo.com/culturespot.
