SEEKING KNOWITALL NEW YORKERS AND LOVERS OF NYC!

Once again, The City Reliquary, Queens Museum, & The Levys’ Unique New York! have partnered for an exciting evening of trivia with the whole city at your feet. Meet us at the world’s largest architectural scale model – The Panorama of the City of New York at the Queens Museum – for a most unusual evening of trivia.

Panorama Challenge quizzes players on all things NYC. MC Matt Apter reads questions while our judges highlight clues on the Panorama using lasers (well, laser pointers). Players in teams of 10 (or so) use those clues (and musical hints!) to determine the correct answer.

BUY TICKETS NOW!

Quizmaster Jonathan Turer returns for his seventh year with another batch of new questions. This year categories may include: Gotham Gangsters on Film; McKim, Mead & White sites; and questions based on the Grammys, the movie Wonderstruck, and the exhibit Never Built New York at the Queens Museum. The ever-popular Halftime Quiz will also be returning!

How To Form A Team:
Teams may organize as Panorama Challengers or Panorama Pros. Challengers are first‐timers or those who have not dedicated their lives to the study of NYC. Their questions will be easier! Pros are returning contestants and die‐hard students of our city’s hidden corners. They answer twice as many questions per round (60 total!) Friendly tour guides from The Levys’ Unique New York! will help match contestants to teams.

The winning Pro team will join the ranks of legendary past winners when its name is etched on the Panorama Challenge Trophy housed at the Queens Museum!

This year promises another impressive panel of judges–stay tuned for more details!

While scores are tallied, there will be an electrifying performance by Batalá New York — an all-woman Afro-Brazilian samba reggae percussion band!

Jan. 27: “Canners” + Q&A with Manfred Kirchheimer

Canners: Saturday, January 27 at 7 PM

Please join us for a screening of Canners (2017), followed by a Q&A with director Manfred Kirchheimer.

This film (run time: 78 min.) presents the men and women who collect New York City’s cans and bottles for redemption. It “delivers a powerful ethical message about what it means to live in a city, and how each of us can choose to acknowledge or ignore our fellow citizens” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times).

Many of Manfred Kirchheimer’s films have addressed overlooked aspects of urban life (Stations of the Elevated; Tall: The American Skyscraper and Louis Sullivan).
