Ever wonder what you’re looking at when you look up at the beautiful night sky? Often, some of the brightest objects in our night sky aren’t stars at all, but planets.

Join us for some breathtaking views of those planets and stars from the roof. Guests are welcome to bring their own binoculars and telescopes and set them up alongside the experts.

*Women in Space is part of Community Cinema’s new series, MAKERS, a six-part PBS series profiling the impact women have had over
the past 50 years in comedy, politics, space, war, business, and Hollywood.

<![CDATA[Peace Through Understanding: The 1964-65 New York World’s Fair]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/10/26/peace-through-understanding-the-196465-new-york-worlds-fair http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/10/26/peace-through-understanding-the-196465-new-york-worlds-fair Date: October 26, 2014

Filmmakers Terri Marlowe and Curtis Cates’ documentary, Peace Through Understanding: The 1964/65 New York World’s Fair, interweaves recollections of numerous World’s Fair participants with archival footage, photos, and period music for a behind-the-scenes and historical account of the event. It incorporates three main themes: it is a story of dreams realized and not; it conveys the feeling of a city built and torn down; and it illuminates the small world of peace through understanding which was envisioned but not achieved.

Rather than a stock “day-at-the-fair” movie, the story is told from numerous viewpoints by the men and women who were there and involved at many levels (pavilion owners, operators and employees. representatives of the 1964/65 New York World’s Fair Corporation, fairgoers, historians, collectors, and curators). They offer insights not only into the Fair, but into the times in which it occurred. The film incorporates their reminiscences and insights into the historical context of the event, and the site itself, as it evolved from an ash dump to the 1939/40 New York World’s Fair, to the temporary headquarters of the United Nations, to the 1964/65 World’s Fair and then, in 1967, to its current state as a New York City park.

Film by BBQ Productions, 90-minutes.
