Just before a film leaves the theatre, the movie lovers at Empire's Columbia Park Cinemas throw it a fitting farewell party. Each week, on what they appropriately dub Last Chance Thursday, the cinema hosts a special for a film coming to the end of its run. Of course, there's plenty of cinema magic on display every day of the week. The cinema showcases first-run movies in all of its stadium-style theaters, and ongoing renovations mean movie goers follow the plot in comfort. For example, Empire's Columbia Park Cinemas plans on adding reclining seats in the near future.

November in New York. Outside, the winds turn cold, the days grow short, and minds drift to thoughts of holiday cheer. Inside, at the historic Academy Mansion, designers bustle with activity. If it's fall in the city, Holiday House NYC can't be far behind. This annual designer showhouse brings the world's top interior designers and architects to this famed Art Deco mansion, where they transform spaces with designs pulled inspired by the holiday season.
Founded by Iris Dankner in 2008 to raise breast cancer awareness, the show has quickly become a cherished event among the city’s design community. With proceeds from all ticket sales going to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through Iris’s very own non-profit, Mission in Pink, Inc., Holiday House became the first designer showhouse held in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization.
Since its inception, Holiday House has showcased some of the top designers, architects, and artists in the industry, received critical acclaim from such outlets as Huffington Post and Forbes, been endorsed by some of the most celebrated global luxury brands, and expanded to a summer showhouse in the Hamptons.
About the Academy Mansion: The solid, monastery-like town house was an anomaly, compared with other grand Upper East Side residences appearing in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1919, Mr. Ziegler contracted architect Frederick Sterner to design a mansion on the site of three old brownstones on East 63rd Street, just off of Fifth Avenue. The 75 foot wide mansion is one of the last remaining of its kind in Manhattan.
February 21, 1965—a defining moment in United States history. While preparing to speak at Manhattan's Audubon Ballroom, human-rights icon Malcolm X was assassinated on stage in front of a crowd of 400. But it wasn't the end of his story. He was survived by his wife, fellow civil-rights advocate Betty Shabazz, and their six children; his autobiography was published shortly after his death; and those whose lives he touched continue to fight for justice to this day. And in May of 2005, even the place where his life ended has been reborn as a locus of education and transformation.
A collaboration of the Shabazz family and Columbia University and located in the former Audubon Ballroom, the Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center acts as an oasis of support for social justice as well as a community hub with workshop programs for teachers, field-trip opportunities for students from kindergarten to post-graduate programs, and public events celebrating landmark moments in civil rights and African American history. It also houses three culturally significant permanent art exhibits and hosts jazz performances on a regular basis. Interactive touch-screen multimedia kiosks let visitors explore the lives and work of Malcolm X and D. Betty Shabazz; they include short videos, photos, and postcards as well as commentary friend of the family Ossie Davis. In all its events and programs, the center aims to live up to one of Malcolm X's central beliefs: "Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs only to the people who prepare for it today."
