    Membership at the museum gets you the chance to see independent and/or international films you might have missed and classics you already love or have always meant to see--all on the big screen.

    One of my fave museums. It’s kind of far away in Queens, but has really great exhibitions on movies, pop culture, technology, and interactive media.

    The great thing about this museum is that it not only teach you the history of cinema but also branches out into evolution of video games (it is moving image after all)

    Out of museums all over NYC, this is one to be visited for something everyone can relate to. Their arcade is cool, but a lot of their machines still need fixing — some having broken buttons/joysticks.

    If you are a fan of images that move, there is no better place. If you are a fan of images that are still, consider other places.
