Who would have expected the Museum of Modern Art to house such a fantastic film collection? Fortunately for movie fans, MoMA considers film to be a modern art and accordingly offers several screenings a day in its three basement theaters. The selections have an art-house slant (foreign films, silent movies, documentaries, and independents), but mainstream Hollywood flicks frequently make the cut. An admission ticket to the museum gets you into any screenings that day for free, and an annual membership gets you in all year long for a single payment.
