MoMA Monday Nights‏

One Monday a month, MoMA stays open until 8:45 p.m. Drop in after hours for exhibitions, films, entertainment, and a cash bar—plus the first 600 ticket buyers after 5:30 p.m. will receive free admission on their next visit. Kick off your shoes in the immersive Pipilotti Rist: Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters), get one last look at Joan Miró's Surrealist take on the world, or sip cocktails with friends in the Gund Lobby and discuss your resolutions for the new year.
Entry to film screenings at MoMA is included in the cost of admission. January 12 films include Trouble the Water (2007), about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. This powerful documentary screens at 6:00 p.m. as part of The Contenders, an ongoing exhibition of influential, innovative films made in the last twelve months.
