1-5 pm: play, 7-9 pm: film screening

Can plazas be made more dynamic by serving different age groups and interests over the course of a day? Can children be better integrated into the life of the street, learning to become citizens through their participation in the city and protected by the watchful eyes of neighbors? UN Plaza will be transformed into a free play space for children, parents and friends. By day, it will feature the Imagination Playground kit by David Rockwell. By night, this space will host a free public screening of the 1906 film A Trip Down Market Street and its 2005 remake by Melinda Stone and Liz Keim. Archivist Rick Prelinger will show films from his collection focusing on the history of Market Street as captured by amateurs, newsreel cameramen and industrial filmmakers. This event is part of the Reclaim Market Street! exhibition.

Free to the public. Register here.
