On January 15, Museum of the Moving Image will reopen, after a major expansion and renovation of its building.

As a vital part of its programming, the Museum will present a special screening of King: A Filmed Record … Montgomery to  Memphis on January, 17th, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This award-winning documentary was originally intended to be screened only once, on March 24, 1970, in select theaters.

For this special event Richard Kaplan, the film’s associate producer will introduce the film, and the Museum will offer free admission (seats are on a first-come, first-serve basis).

The Museum also includes an impressive array of film screenings and events scheduled this year, including live events with Diahann Caroll & Herbert Schlosser on February 10th and Bill Cosby on February 15th.
