What do you give the guy who has everything on Father’s Day? A new tie is definitely out of the question. Ditto a corny Hallmark card. But a horror movie would be nice. Or two. Or three.
This Sunday, the Museum of the Moving Image presents Horror Father’s Day, a special screening of three feature films starring scary dads. The Night of the Hunter kicks off the fun at 2 pm. This 1955 masterpiece stars Robert Mitchum as a creepy preacher/serial killer who does a prison stretch. Once free, he tracks down a condemned inmate’s family in an attempt to find some allegedly hidden money.
Van Morrison, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Met Opera stars, and the Muppets are the world famous celebrities providing entertainment and enrichment in the borough this week. Other possibilities are a LEGO fest, comedy, seniors singing Broadway, a Summer Solstice event, and an International Yoga Day gala. Here’s the rundown.
