All Day

Tut’s Fever Movie Palace

Behind the Screen

Museum of the Moving Image

The Museum's core exhibition immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment.

The Jim Henson Exhibition

Museum of the Moving Image

This dynamic experience explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on culture. 

Refreshing the Loop

Refreshing the Loop continues Museum of the Moving Image’s tradition of displaying GIFs in our passenger elevator. This new iteration places artists who have been widely known for their GIFs for more than two decades in conversation with selected artists who have gained notable popularity in the last few years.

Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt

Shot in the Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights station, this installation video captures the tide of New Yorkers streaming through an entrance to the subway system in what the filmmakers refer to as a “collective ballet.”


Eva Davidova’s participatory installation playfully incorporates both ancient myth and contemporary reality, highlighting the theme of interdependent responsibility in the wake of ecological disaster.


David Levine’s Dissolution is a jewel-box sculpture that conjures the past and future of the moving image. A 20-minute film played on a loop, it draws on the central conceit of iconic 1980s movies and TV shows such as Tron and Max Headroom: human characters who find themselves dematerialized and confined within the interior worlds of electronic devices.

Reflected Forms: Story and Character in the Films of Todd Haynes

On the occasion of Todd Haynes’s May December, MoMI presents an exhibit with materials from the archives of filmmaker Todd Haynes, now part of the Museum’s collection, offering a glimpse into his process of transforming historical and cultural referents into formally ambitious, richly emotional films. 


Our Hospitality

Buster Keaton's lovingly detailed parody of the legendary feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and McCoys of Kentucky is filled with perfectly timed sight gags that culminate in one of Keaton’s literally death-defying set pieces. Screening 12/9 and 12/16.


The Philadelphia Story

Three of Hollywood’s greatest stars—Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart—teamed up in this enduring, Oscar-winning classic that revolves around a high society divorcée whose second wedding is disrupted by her first husband and a cynical tabloid reporter. Screening 12/15 and 12/16.

Tomorrow’s Another Day

This documentary by Johan Carlsson provides a candid view of Roy Andersson’s process, showing us exactly how Andersson constructs his unforgettable images.


Dark Waters

Adopting the style of paranoid 1970s American thrillers, Todd Haynes and cinematographer Ed Lachman bring a bold, melancholy pallor to the true story of a corporate defense attorney, Rob Billot (Mark Ruffalo), who fought to expose the corruption of chemical manufacturing corporation DuPont.


You, the Living + World of Glory

It took nearly seven years to build the wildly elaborate sets, and to finance the second in Roy Andersson’s “human trilogy." Showing with Andersson's haunting 14-minute short. The 12/30 screening will be introduced by critic Imogen Sara Smith.


A Swedish Love Story

With a gentle humanism and low-key lyricism reminiscent of the films of the Czech New Wave, Andersson’s beautifully observed debut stars the wonderfully naturalistic Ann-Sofie Kylin and Rolf Sohlman.
