50 Years of Bond at MoMA

Movies

New Yorkers are getting a little Bond treat this month at the Museum of Modern Art:

Coinciding with Global James Bond Day on October 5, the exhibition kicks off that evening at 8:00 p.m. with the screening of Dr. No introducing Sean Connery as the original Bond, and will screen the Bond films in chronological order twice during the month of October.

October 5th is the exact 50th anniversary of Dr. No’s premiere.

Bonus, from the press release (PDF):

Accompanying 50 Years of James Bond is Goldfinger: the Design of an Iconic Film Title, an installation that features the first film title sequence to enter MoMA’s collection as a design work in its own right, in conjunction with related preparatory material.

The films, I assume, will screen here in Austin at some point, but I’m curious about that installation. Probably worth a peek if you’re in NYC this fall.
