See It Big! (April–July, 2012)
An ongoing series curated in collaboration with Reverse Shot editors Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert
The popular series See It Big! celebrates the immersive power of the theatrical experience. The best available versions of each film are screened, from beautifully restored 35mm and 70mm prints to new digital restorations, in the Museum’s beautiful main theater which was called “the best new theater for old movies” by New York magazine, and “magnificent” by The New York Times. The theater is a great venue for those classic movies that simply demand to be seen in their original form, on the big screen. But it is not just the quality of image and sound that makes these screenings memorable; it is also the opportunity to see these movies in a social setting, with an audience and away from the distractions of daily life.
