New York Story Film
Shown at 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, plus 5 pm and 7 pm on Fridays, New York Story, narrated by Liev Schreiber, is an eighteen-minute theatrical media experience. Set in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art theater off the Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History, it illuminates the story of the nation by exploring the story of New York and its rise from a remote outpost to a city at the center of the world.

Through immersive video projection, moving scenic elements, theatrical lighting, surround sound and a show design that evolves over the course of the experience, visitors will witness the dynamic forces that have shaped the nation and the city, discovering themes and core notions that sit at their nexus. The overall vista expands from 25’ to 73’ wide high-resolution images over the course of the show.
