Celebrating 50 Years of Sesame Street

July 28–December 22, 2019
The groundbreaking children’s television series Sesame Street turns 50 this year. To celebrate this milestone, Museum of the Moving Image is presenting a monthly series of events highlighting different aspects of the beloved series, including the “lost” segments that never aired, and a “film festival” of the short films, many of them documentaries, that debuted as part of the program. The series will be accompanied by special guests including longtime cast members Bob McGrath and Sonia Manzano, William Wegman, and others.

Organized by guest curator Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy
