The Film Society of Lincoln Center presents MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET



A family favorite and holiday classic returns to the big screen! Whether you watch it every year or want to enjoy it for the first time, the Academy Award-winning Miracle on 34th Street is a must-see for all ages.

When a nice old man from a retirement home becomes the favorite Santa at Macy’s, even a cynical little girl (Natalie Wood) slowly becomes a believer—not just in the spirit of Christmas, but in the ability of all of us to be kind and generous. As this Santa brings rival retailers together, he’s hauled off to the loony bin and has to go to court to prove he’s the real Kris Kringle, making for a raucous courtroom climax. Edmund Gwenn won an Oscar for his role as the most genuine Santa on screen. The original is still the best, full of real New York City locations. Although Gimbels Department Store may be a thing of the past, Macy’s and its annual Thanksgiving Day parade are still here and more famous than ever! 

Join the Film Society for this beloved classic and enjoy delicious popcorn from indie food and wine free of charge! Also, be sure to check out their Family Films series with weekend matinees the kids are sure to love like Babe, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and more.

Location: Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, 144 West 65th Street between Broadway & Amsterdam
Time: 3:30pm | 5:30pm | 7:30pm (doors open 15 minutes prior to each screening)

The Pop Ups at Kids’ Central


The Pop Ups have received a GRAMMY nomination for their second family music CD, Radio Jungle. This self-produced, self-released collection of wildly imaginative and catchy tunes debuted in April, and has since won accolades from Parents’ Choice the Fids and Kamily Awards, as well as heavy rotation on SiriusXM’s “Kids Place Live” radio show, and other national acclaim.

The Pop Ups (Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein) are a Brooklyn-based musical duo who the Wall Street Journal says “reflect the creativity percolating on the independent children’s music scene.”  Not your typical band; The Pop Ups perform their music using cardboard props, hand-painted sets, and a colorful cast of original puppets; crafting a world of magic that engages, educates and delights all ages. The Pop Ups perform regularly at NYC venues, tour regionally, and are about to do their second national tour with Yo Gabba Gabba Live. The duo won high praise from critics for their first stage show “PASTA: A Pop Ups Puppet Musical,” which has enjoyed successful runs in New York and Los Angeles.

The Pop Ups’ first release Outside Voices took the kindie rock world by surprise when it was released in 2010, winning awards, national radio play and mounds of critical acclaim.  A love letter to pop music, Radio Jungle assimilates pop idioms into something new and altogether unique.  The songs are polished, sonically cohesive and inviting with themes ranging from where “Bananas” come from, to the artistic potential presented by a “Box of Crayons.” Teachable moments abound, as in the phonemic “Elephants” and the bouncy counting song “Math Rock.”  The Pop Ups exuberance and musical prowess shine with every track. The album features Shawana Kemp (Shine & the Moonbeams), legendary psych-rock pioneer Peter Stampfel (The Fugs and Holy Modal Rounders), and Oran Etkin, a clarinetist-educator who has participated in other productions recognized by the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs).

Following Jason’s featured role in the Tony Award winning Broadway production of One Man Two Guvnors, The Pop Ups are scheduling a busy upcoming 2013 concert tour of their new puppet musical titled RADIO JUNGLE, a comedic, ecological scavenger hunt in search of color, featuring songs from the GRAMMY nominated album and proving that anyone can use duct tape, cardboard, paint and imagination to create magic, and adventure.
