This June, the Museum is featuring two outdoor films to celebrate the exhibition Picturing Power: Capitalism, Democracy, and American Portraiture––a floor-to-ceiling installation of fifty of the finest portraits from the New York Chamber of Commerce’s influential (but now-dispersed) collection. Each film includes scenes shot in the New York Chamber of Commerce Building. Join us on the lawn at sundown for director John Landis's Trading Places (1983), starring the incomparable comedic duo of Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. With popcorn and soda provided, it's a wonderful, and free, way to ease into summer.
In the event of inclement weather, the film will be screened in McCormick 101 at 8:30pm. No tickets are necessary.
