From IGN – – April 3, 2007 – In a motion picture promotional move that’s pretty much unprecedented as far as we can recall, New York City has declared that the week of April 30 through May 6 will be “Spider-Man Week In NYC.”

The City of New York will celebrate the Webslinger with a variety of festivities throughout all five boroughs, involving New York City landmarks such as the Central Park and Bronx Zoos, the American Museum of Natural History and the Apollo Theater.

The week will peak with the world premiere of Spider-Man 3 at the Tribeca Film Festival in Queens, hometown of the fictional hero, with more screenings set for various locations throughout the city.

Columbia Pictures is partnering with NYC & Company, the City’s tourism, marketing and events organization, to pull off the large-scale event.

“Because New York City is Spider-Man’s hometown, we wanted to find a way to make the launch of the summer movie-going season and Spider-Man 3 really special for the city and its people,” said Jeff Blake, Vice Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Spider-Man Week in NYC begins on Monday, April 30, with a cast appearance and street festival in the Today plaza at Rockefeller Center. The week continues with Spider-Man-themed programs offered through partnerships with the Tribeca Film Festival, and dozens of the city’s cultural institutions and tourist attractions, including a special volunteer day for children through the Little Apple Heroes program, “spidery” tales for kids at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, “Spidey Chats” at the Central Park and Bronx Zoos, Green Goblin mask-making at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and a spider exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History. Original Spider-Man comic books will be on display at the New York Public Library, and the Apollo Theater in Harlem will host the closing day celebration with performances of Spider-Man inspired raps.

Meanwhile, Cybergosh continues to check Fandango everyday to see if the IMAX tickets have gone on sale, as their potentially cool “Fan Alerts” seem to notify him a day too late.
