There are live screenings of classic movies, fun exhibits about the movies, and a permanent Jim Henson collection for those of us who are Muppets fans. It's a 15 minute subway ride from Times Square to Astoria and well worth the trip.
Great to see that movies have come back to the cinema on West 57th Street at 12th Avenue. The Look Cinema offers blockbuster movie and a chef-inspired menu, as well as cocktails, wines and beers delivered to your seat. https://www.lookcinemas.com/location/1006
The New York Film Festival takes a lot of the limelight, but there are other amazing festivals going on in the city all year round.
One of my personal favourites. The 16th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will take place in October, celebrating a wide range of films loosely associated with science. October 20-27, 2023
Billed as "one of the finest exhibitions of short films in North America", the 2022 New York Shorts International Film Festival featured over 340 short films, special events, talks, retrospective films, and tributes. Coming in October.
The daddy of them all. Starts in late September. Priority booking goes to Film at Lincoln Center members, who also benefit from membership perks at FilmLinc throughout the year.
Tribeca Festival 2023 took place June 7-18 this year. They say that "For over 20 years, Tribeca has worked to bring the community together through innovative storytelling across film, TV, immersive, games, talks, audio storytelling, and more!" I particularly enjoyed the Q&A sessions with film professionals.
