The week kicks off with a day off of school (and long weekend) in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Join Manhattan Country School for a commemorative march or use the day to score a gingerbread house at the New York Hall of Science. NYC kids can also catch two live productions later this week—Babel and Snowkus Pocus: Enchant the Spring—and then a Digital Media Lab for teens at the Museum of the Moving Image.
Speaking of movies, tickets go on sale soon for the New York International Children's Film Festival—and the best flicks always sell out fast. Members can purchase tickets beginning this Wednesday, January 18, and non-members the following Wednesday, January 25. Don't forget the BAMKids Film Festival kicks off in just two weeks, and those tickets are already on sale...and starting to sell out!
