This event has passed.

Join us for a back to school screening of the 2005 hit film Madagascar! We won't only watch Central Park Zoo animals make their great escape we will also help you make a mask of your favorite Madagascar movie character. 

Move it! Move it! 4 pampered animals from New York’s Central Park Zoo find themselves shipwrecked on the exotic island of Madagascar, and discover it really IS a jungle out there! Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith lead an all-star cast of hilarious animals, including four mischievous penguins and legions of lemurs. Its a film that you’ll go wild for again and again!

Join us for Madagascar Mask Making & Movie fun! 

You can choose to register for the 10am – 12:30pm session or the 1pm – 3:30pm session. In both sessions, we will host a mask-making workshop followed by the film screening.
