Open Door Fridays

October 25, 2019 – December 27, 2019

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and the MoMA Stores in New York City have closed temporarily. 

Breaking with an 80-plus-year tradition of ticketed screenings in MoMA’s theaters, Open Door Fridays gives visitors unlimited, all-day access to specially selected film programs that will run continuously during Museum hours. The Department of Film celebrates the Museum’s 2019 reopening by offering a taste of a moviegoing experience that was commonly enjoyed by audiences from the early silent period through the 1960s: Every Friday, you are encouraged to drop in to the theater at any point and stay as long as you like to enjoy audience favorites and hidden gems from MoMA’s collection—with no tickets required!

Organized by the Department of Film.
