Week 49: Museum of the Moving Image

The Museum is located on the site of the largest, busiest, and most significant motion picture and television production facility between London and Hollywood, the Astoria Studio. Built in 1920 across the East River from midtown Manhattan, the studio was Paramount's East Coast production facility, and, in the 1930s, a site for independent film production. The Museum offers a family-friendly environment and special events year round. Star in your own video flipbook, animate an original cartoon, play your way through the history of video games, or attend a family workshop and learn how movies are made. A movie-themed party is also a great way to celebrate a special birthday.
