The "Mad Men" era began in New York so it's only fitting that it will end in the five boroughs with a big celebration, including an exhibition opening at the Museum of the Moving Image next month and a conversation plus viewing marathon at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
"Matthew Weiner's Mad Men," at MoMI from March 14-June 14, will feature bits of the real set such as Don Draper's office and the Draper kitchen, advertising art, and personal notes from creator Weiner. He is set to make an appearance at the exhibit on March 20 to speak about the series' creation and production.
"We are grateful to AMC, Lionsgate, and the extraordinarily talented team of creative professionals behind 'Mad Men' for giving us an unprecedented degree of access to objects that inform and define this landmark television series," said Carl Goodman, executive director of Museum of the Moving Image.
A number of props and costumes will be added to the museum's permanent collection.
The Film Society's "Mad Men: The End of an Era" will include a conversation with Weiner and stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and John Slattery at Alice Tully Hall on March 21 and screenings of some of Weiner's favorite episodes that weekend.
