To welcome the Queens Council on the Arts to the neighborhood and to celebrate its newly completed “backyard,” Museum of the Moving Image will offer free admission all day on Saturday, June 22, including free tickets to all screenings and programs that day.
Be among the first members of the public to step foot in the George S. Kaufman Courtyard, an outdoor space carpeted with pale blue turf and shade-giving trees. In the coming days, the Museum will present outdoor screenings and other events, and will offer extended seating for its cafe.
On Saturday, visitors can explore Behind the Screen, the Museum’s interactive core exhibition about how moving images are made, marketed, and shown. Theater programs for the day include a celebration of the pioneering modern dancer and choreographer Katherine Dunham with a work-in-progress screening of a new documentary about her life and legacy followed by a town-hall discussion (3:00 p.m.); and screenings of the South Korean animated feature Green Days (1:00 p.m.), Roberto Rossellini’s Journey to Italy (6:00 p.m.), and the teen coming-of-age film Meatballs (1:00 p.m.).
