Screenings & Red Carpet Events

Make a splash with your next screening, red carpet event, or launch. 

We have stunning spaces for welcoming guests, press, and luminaries to your next screening, premiere, or upfront, hosting a step-and-repeat, and gathering guests for a reception.

The Museum’s three different theaters offer a variety of solutions for your television or  film premiere. With its Beaux-Arts setting, and state-of-the-art sound and projection, the LeFrak Theater is the crown jewel—the dramatic setting to debut a creative work.
