It's time to dress up and dance at our annual Cocktails & Culture Halloween Bash, which this year pays homage to New York Movies! This city is home to countless iconic movie characters, from Holly Golightly and Shaft, to Spiderman and the Ghostbusters.  Pick your favorite movie character and join us on the dance floor on our South Terrace (weather permitting) for live sets by DJ Misbehaviour and DJ Shakey. Make sure your costume is red carpet ready so you can compete in our costume contest for prizes! Co-hosted by Rebecca Lynn.

Enjoy themed cocktails from the MCNY bar, delicious bites from Empanada Mama, artisanal gelato by Avrilililly's Creamery, and stroll after-hours through our exhibitions, including This Is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture.
