Monitor Night with Puppet Kitchen (all ages)


Location: Nam June Paik Room / HBO Production Lab

Join the Puppet Kitchen at the Museum of the Moving Image!

Have you ever wondered how the puppets you see on TV come to life? One of the secrets is in giving performers a look at what the camera sees through a live-feed video monitor.

At Monitor Night, we set up a few cameras and monitors so you can come learn about this technique alongside experienced puppeteers who come to hone their skills. Bring a puppet or use one of ours. All are welcome to play. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets: $25 ($15 for Museum members). Order tickets online. (Members may contact [email protected] with questions regarding online reservations.)

Ticket purchase includes same-day admission to the Museum (see gallery hours). View the Museum’s ticketing policy here. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
