Movies, Art and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, December 21, 2018


Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a movie with orchestral accompaniment to some great museum shows. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.
