Begun in September 2015 to celebrate the Department of Film’s 80th anniversary, Modern Matinees is an ongoing program of afternoon screenings, drawn primarily from MoMA’s collection, organized around themes from big names and personalities to major movements, time periods, genres, and more. These anthology programs may change on a monthly basis or emerge in longer arcs, and they will often be accompanied by posts on MoMA’s Inside/Out blog.
