The Astoria Studio complex, home to everything from early Marx Brothers talking films to The Cosby Show and Nurse Jackie, has been a part of the NYC film landscape since 1920. It has served as the East Coast home of Paramount Pictures, the US Army Pictorial Center from World War II into the Cold War era and most recently, home to the Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image. This exhibition uses films, behind-the-scenes paraphernalia, oral histories and posters to trace the complex's legacy.
