In conjunction with the Queens Museum’s exhibition about the Ramones, this weekly film series highlights the evolution of musical performers. We will explore not only the creative process and the inspirational power of music, but the business of career-building. Each movie is introduced by Mark Ethan Toporek, who also leads a post-screening discussion. He is a member of the Actors’ Studio, and has appeared in films including The Secret Lives of Dentists, The Confession and Lesser Prophets. He has been presenting the Film Series at the Queens Museum since 1998, and at 92Y since 2003.
This film series takes place in the second-floor theater and is free with Museum admission ($4 for seniors) and open to the general public (with a special invitation to seniors). The line-up of films:
5/4 – Bob Roberts
5/11 – Whiplash
5/18 – Music and Lyrics
5/25 – Dirty Dancing
