Join ART for a guided tour of the Museum of the Moving Image’s core exhibition, Behind the Screen. Behind the Screen is a one-of-a-kind experience that immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of making, promoting, and presenting films, televisions, and other forms of digital entertainment. The exhibition also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production.

The Museum of the Moving Image is a media museum located in a former building of the historic Astoria Studios (now Kaufman Astoria Studios) in Astoria, Queens. It collects, preserves, and provides access to moving-image related artifacts via multimedia exhibitions and educational programming.

This is an in-person event limited to 15 people. The cost of admission for ART Members is $5 per person. ART members are invited to bring guests for a cost of $10 per guest. No refunds for cancellations, and registration is non-transferable.

Directions by subway, bus, car, and bike can be found here.
