What do YOU want to see on the big screen?

The Paley Center is now offering all Members the opportunity to program our giant-screen theater. You tell us what to screen (provided it is included in our collection of 160,000 programs—we’re sure you’ll find something you like!) and all you have to do is invite your friends, family, officemates, band members, and more to join the fun! You can even request that one of our Curators (aka Television Experts) be available to take questions from the audience.

Members Choice Screenings are open to the public, so swing by and discover hidden treasures!
