More than just being an exhibitor of Himalayan artwork and artifacts, the Rubin Museum is also a cultural hub with its weekly film series, Cabaret Cinema. Film and art lovers alike can enjoy a drink in the museum’s bar and restaurant Café Serai, and then retire to its theater for a Friday night film.

Showing some of cinema’s world-famous classics, the series is themed and often invites special speakers to introduce the films, noting how each of these films are adjacent to the Rubin’s exhibits.

Previous guests have included Matt Damon and Alan Cumming. Looking to put a new spin on a dinner-and-a-movie date night?
