The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off in less than a month but it's still not to late to sign up as a volunteer.
The fest will take place April 17 - 28, 2013 at various venues around NYC, and they always need plenty of volunteers, or crew members as they call them, to keep things running smoothly.
With headliners like Kanye West, Kings Of Leon, and Guns & Roses, the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival really does have something for everyone.
The three day music festival will be held over a three days this summer, June 7-9, 2013, on Randall's Island in New York City.
Spider-Man might be a fixture in New York City, the city Peter Parker calls home but, surprisingly, not one Spider-Man movie was entirely shot in New York...until now.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the first in the history of the franchise to be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
Even though ABC has grounded new episodes of Pan Am until January 8, 2012, the show's stars are still busy shooting fresh scenes in New York City.
On Wednesday, December 7, Christina Ricci was spotted filming in a little black retro dress on the Upper East Side. Ricci, who plays Pan Am flight attendant Maggie Ryan in the series, also did some multitasking as she walked, smoked, and enjoyed a diet coke on the way to her trailer to change.
Some of us will overdose on nostalgia, along with turkey, this week as a new Muppets movie opens in theaters. In The Muppets, which hits theaters today, Kermit and his furry friends must reunite to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and save The Muppet Theater from an oil tycoon who plans to demolish the building.
Muppet enthusiasts can also get a look inside the mind of legendary Muppets' creator Jim Henson at the Museum Of The Moving Image in New York City through January 16, 2012. Jim Henson's Fantastic World celebrates Henson's creative genius through his original drawings, storyboards, and props, including rare Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog puppets.
The museum, located at 36-01 35 Avenue in Astoria, NY, is open Tuesday - Sunday (though they will be closed on Thanksgiving). Adult admission is $12. For more information about the Jim Henson exhibit, visit MovingImage.us.

Miley Cyrus isn't letting a break up, or more controversy, get her down. The singer/actress was seen landing in New York's JFK airport yesterday where she was all smiles, laughing with her mom, Tish, and joking around with the waiting paparazzi.
Miley split with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth just last week after the two had been dating for more than a year. The couple met on the Georgia set of their movie The Last Song and weren't shy about showing how much they cared for each other. There are rumors that Miley isn't all that heartbroken because she's already moved on. Various websites speculate that Miley is hooking up with her latest co-star, Adam Sevani. The two have been working on the movie LOL together in Detroit for more than a month.

Taylor Lautner greets fans
This summer has been one of the busiest ever for movie-making, which means fans have plenty of choices if they want to do some set-stalking. Here are our top three movie shoots to catch right now:
· 'Scream 4' in Ann Arbor, MI
The fourth installment of the Scream franchise has been shooting in Michigan for more than a month.
