Film. Sports. Art. Theater. New York is a creative hotbed with activities to appease every member of the fam! So much to do, and so little time.
Must See Film
The legendary Film Forum is one of New York City’s classic independent movie houses. Since its inception in 1970, it has showcased a literal cavalcade of independent films. It’s currently showcasing a double feature.
Director Martin Scorsese curates a twofer film festival: two flicks for the price of one, with director/screenwriter, Jay Cocks. 209 W. Houston Street. Marty and Jay’s Double Feature runs Aug. 16th -Sept. 5th.
It’s that time of year, the final stop of the Grand Slam, and New York’s answer to the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon – the very well attended U.S. Open. Fan Week is from Aug. 19th – 25th. A great time to see tennis legends take the court in NYC to practice for the U.S. Open along with family-friendly kid events, music concerts, and an adult happy hour. Admission is free, but register for your U.S. Open Fan Access Pass ahead of time.
Best Art Shows in New York
With an abundance of museums and galleries, it’s almost impossible to select one ‘must see,’ so we’ve picked our favorite three – right now.
The Fletcher Family: A Lifetime in Surf at the Gagosian Gallery through Aug. 30th
Apollo’s Muse at The Metropolitan Museum of Art through Sept. 22nd
Basquiat’s “Defacement: The Untold Story at the Guggenheim Museum through Nov. 6th
Hot New Theater Ticket
“Moulin Rouge! The Musical” at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre
Gorgeous and gaudy, spectacularly overstuffed, this adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s spectacular 2001 movie, is a lavish Broadway spectacle with dazzling shine. Though set in 1899 Paris, the pop songs span 150 years of styles from “Lady Marmalade” to Outkast and Adele and more than 75 of the most memorable tunes of our time. A pricey ticket, but it looks and feels expensive with eye popping costumes, a sumptuous set, and opulent showmanship. Karen Olivo and Aaron Tveit sing
gloriously in the lead roles.
