Artscene Newsletter: MoMA Films

MoMA FILM   from the website: MoMA Presents: Elaine May’s Mikey and Nicky / May 3-9 This is a weeklong run of MoMA’s recently struck 35mm print of Mikey and Nicky, the third of Elaine May’s brilliant contributions to 1970s American cinema, after A New Leaf and The Heartbreak Kid.
