The Museum of the Moving Image will host Yoko Ono and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus tomorrow for the premiere of its documentary film, Come Together NYC.

The bus has been traveling around the City for the past month, hosting community gatherings and gathering material for the film at each event. The final product will focus on portraying the stories of NYC immigrants, and will premier at 6:30 tomorrow night.

The event will be held at the Museum of the Moving Image tomorrow and will include speeches from artist and activist Yoko Ono, wife of John Lennon, as well as a speech from rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen, among others.

The Lennon Bus was co-founded by Ono nearly 20 years ago as an extension of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and contains a recording facility aimed at providing hands on experiences for people throughout the country.

For the last month, the bus has been touring around the City in honor of Lennon’s birthday on October 9, including several stops in Astoria and Jackson Heights.

At each event, the bus offered people the opportunity to participate in art projects and help put together material for the documentary, as well as hosting other family oriented activities.

In addition to premiering the final documentary, the event tomorrow will showcase artwork and photography from the tour.
