Venue Description: The Museum of the Moving Image, located in Astoria, serves New York City?s cultural scene with impressive collections and exhibitions that relate to film, television, and digital media. The museum?s mission is to foster an appreciation of the combination of art, history, and technology that underlies all forms of digital media. The museum is home to artifacts that attest to the rich history of film and television, and hosts screenings that are at once entertaining and informative, with directors, actors, and film critics often speaking. The museum offers exhibitions that cater to people of all ages. Behind the Screens, an interactive exhibit, is especially fitted for families, with its interactive activities, classic video arcade games, and a daily screening of the film The Red Balloon. Though more than satisfying in its current state, the museum is currently expanding so as to be able to house more exhibitions.There are special programs for educators and students, professional development programs for teachers, an afterschool program, and events for senior citizens.
