Don’t miss out on this gem, America’s oldest public-art museum, which also screens the best in independent and art films. At the Aetna, you’ll find yourself in a magnificent Art Deco theater, first built to house George Balanchine’s Ballets Russes. This locale is a winner for anyone with a taste of the artistic and the offbeat. Wine, beer, and snacks are available before showtime in the theater’s Loctite Lobby. Film discussions take place after each film screening.
