Join us for '80s New York-inspired evening! In After Hours (1985, 98 minutes), a now-classic directed by Martin Scorsese, Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) suffers through a night of misadventures in Soho after a date with Mary Franklin (Rosanna Arquette) goes wrong.  From a murderous bar owner, a flighty waitress, a pyromaniac, and other colorful characters, the film offers a noirish and humorous view of the downtown scene in 1980s NYC.   

The evening kicks off with a Happy Hour and DJ EMZ of Mobile Mondays spinning 80's classics and deep cuts on the Museum's beautiful front terrace overlooking Central Park (drinks & snacks available for purchase).  This is the first event in our summer film screening series, Moonlight & Movies, inspired by the Museum's new exhibition New York, New Music: 1980 - 1986 (opens June 11).

Please note that in case of rain, this event will be rescheduled for Thursday, June 24, 2021.
