  • Museums: New York City offers a large variety of museums, art collections, and exhibits.
  • AMC TheatersMoviefone and Fandango: Have a free evening? Catch the newest movie releases. Visit any of these sites to get schedules for any theater in New York City, but first stop by the OSA to purchase discount movie passes.
