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.”

GLOBAL MODE >

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.

Dissolution

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.

Next Time We Love

In his first starring role, James Stewart plays a New York reporter separated from his wife (Margaret Sullavan) when he’s posted to Rome and she refuses to give up her acting career.

1974: The Possession of Altair

First-time filmmaker Victor Dryere utilizes analog technology and the gimmick of found-footage horror to create warm, foggy imagery that expertly shocks and scares.  

Recurring

The Village 

M. Night Shyamalan's most conceptually complex, intricately patterned film, a Bush-era political allegory that evokes the literature of Hawthorne and Irving in its deeply American fears of the unknown, screens on 35mm 10/21 and 10/28.
