MoMA Film Collection. In Memoriam: Celeste Bartos (1913–2013)

A Damsel in Distress. 1937. USA. Directed by George Stevens

New York events. Celeste Bartos joined The Museum of Modern Art Board of Trustees in 1970, and served for more than four decades as a dynamic committee member and chairman. Mrs. Bartos and her husband, Armand, were also generous with gifts of important works to MoMA’s collection, and no curatorial department has benefitted more from their largesse than the Department of Film.

Until the mid-1990s MoMA’s film collection was housed in a commercial warehouse in Fort Lee, New Jersey. As the chairman of the Film Committee, Celeste Bartos provided significant funding and, more importantly, key trustee support for the planning and building of a state-of-the-art film storage and preservation facility in Hamlin, Pennsylvania, that would be solely owned and run by MoMA. Opened in 1996, The Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center is home to one of the world’s most important collections of film art. Yet Mrs. Bartos’s support extended beyond brick and mortar; she also endowed a Chief Curator of Film position and established The Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation, which has been the major source of funding for MoMA’s world-renowned preservation activities for over three decades.

The remarkable selection of films in this series illustrates the scope of conservation work carried out by the Department of Film, work that has in large part been facilitated by the dedication and support of a forward-thinking philanthropist and movie lover. The staff of the Department of Film will dearly miss our champion, Celeste Bartos.

Organized by Anne Morra, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
