Too hot outside? Join us for this family classic while you kick back and enjoy some popcorn. Get a glimpse into the rough-and-tumble world of 1950s New York City through the epic love story of Tony and Maria. The lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and score by Leonard Bernstein bring the streets of New York alive – many of the scenes were filmed on location near the current location of Lincoln Center. After the film, discover photographs of the five boroughs from the 19th and 20th centuries in the DiMenna Children's History Museum.
Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
