Amazing Spider-Man to Celebrate Spider-Man Week

In celebration of the release of The Amazing Spider-Man on July 3, 2012, Columbia Pictures has partnered with some of NYC’s premier cultural institutions to create Spider-Man Week in NYC, a seven-day calendar of events in all five boroughs.

The week includes a volunteer initiative as Spider-Man teams with his fellow New Yorkers to give back to their community by helping out people in need.

With special events at New York landmarks from the Empire State Building to the American Museum of Natural History to the Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum, Spider-Man Week in NYC offers a chance to celebrate the film and the city that Spider-Man loves and protects.  For a full calendar of events, you can visit www.spidermanweeknyc.com.

The week of events kicks off on Monday, June 25 with the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man appearing on the Today Show Plaza. That evening, there will be a Spider-Man event at Forbidden Planet, and the Empire State Building will light up in Spider-Man red and blue to encourage fans to Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer the next day, Tuesday, June 26th.

Fans can log onto www.beamazing2012.com to register for this nationwide day of volunteering, which will support Stand Up To Cancer. With the support of NYC Service, the cast of the film will join thousands of New Yorkers to volunteer at locations throughout all five boroughs.

On Wednesday, June 27, Spider-Man will deliver the first spider to The American Museum of Natural History’s newest exhibit, “SPIDERS ALIVE!”

The Wildlife Conservation Society Zoos will feature Spider-Man themed scavenger hunts. Spider-Man will visit children at NYC-area hospitals, in partnership with Lollipop Theater Network.  Madame Tussauds New York features the new Marvel Super Hero 4D experience.

On Saturday, June 30th, kids can visit the Sony Wonder Technology Lab for a Sci-Tech Workshop on Spider-Man animation, where they will learn the basic techniques behind stop motion animation to create their very own unique Spider-Man animated short to take home.

Also on Saturday, at the Skyscraper Museum, kids will find out what running a newspaper is like by producing their own special-edition illustrated paper. The week will conclude on Sunday, July 1st at Spider-Man Square on the Intrepid’s Pier 86 with fun activities and giveaways.
