The Museum of the Moving Image will present Getting Close: Ten Great Performances by Glenn Close, a series of screenings looking at Close's career on the big screen. Films set to be shown include 101 Dalmatians, Reversal of Fortune, Cookie's Fortune, and The Wife, along with Close's six Academy Award-nominated performances in The World According to Garp, The Big Chill, The Natural, Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons, and Albert Nobbs. The screenings run November 23–December 2.

The series coincides with the museum's 32nd annual gala salute December 3, at which Close will be the evening's honoree. Close joins previous recipients of the Museum's Salute, including Annette Bening, Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Robin Williams, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman, Steve Martin, Julianne Moore, Al Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Jimmy Stewart.

Close is currently finishing out the run of Mother of the Maid at Off-Broadway's Public Theater, which completes its extended run December 23. The three-time Tony winner was last seen on Broadway in the 2017 revival of Sunset Boulevard, in which Close recreated her Tony-winning performance as faded movie star Norma Desmond. Close also won Tony Awards for her performances in The Real Thing and Death and the Maiden, receiving a nomination for her performance in Barnum.
