MTR hosts ‘Sex’ marathon

HBO skein gets big screen send-off

The Museum of Television & Radio will hold six marathon weekend screenings of “Sex and the City,” up to the final eight episodes, in both Gotham and L.A.

One season per weekend will be covered on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from Jan. 17 through Feb. 22.

Gotham screenings will begin at 1 p.m., L.A. screenings at noon.

In addition, MT&R is offering a prize package on each coast filled with various indulgences in accordance with the girls’ lifestyle and tastes, including a $500 gift certificate to an upscale Gotham department store and $200 at a shoe store where that amount may come closer to covering a lone shoe rather than a pair.

Nostalgic editorial tributes to the series have already begun appearing in N.Y. papers and mags, while swanky uptown department store Barneys dedicated all four of its main Christmas windows to the show, each with revisitations of classic fairy tales featuring one of the four stars.
