Celebrating John

Fall is officially here. Gray skies have heralded in chilly temperatures and short, gloomy days. With a forecast heavy on precipitation all week, FF predicts that indoor activities will be all the rage. 

Luckily, it's NYC so there's no shortage of things to do.

In honor of John Lennon's 70th birthday, The Paley Center for Media in midtown Manhattan is hosting a celebration featuring screenings and a photo exhibit dedicated to the most famous Beatle.  The celebration kicks off tonight at 7:00pm with a screening of Nowhere Boy, which documents young Lennon and the relationship with his estranged mother. The screening is $20 for members, $15 for everyone else. 

On Thursday, October 7, at 7:00pm, fans can come back to catch a film about the final years of Lennon's life in New York City: LENNONYC. $15 for members, $10 for everyone else. 

For those who still need more, The Paley Center will host a "This Boy... John Lennon in Liverpool", a photography exhibit with images of Lennon's youth and his town his band made famous. The exhibit opens on Wednesday and runs through December 31. Free with museum admission.
