SOUTH STREET SEAPORT — A 70-foot-long, igloo-like tent is the hot spot for free music, movies and art this winter at the Seaport.

The cold weather pop-up venue, called the Sugarcube, returns to 14 Fulton St. for a second winter of daily special events through January.

The lineup for the 250-person tent includes free movies at 7 p.m. Thursday nights, including "Enchanted," "Toxic Avengers" and "Teenage Mutant Turtles II."

On Friday nights, the venue, which has a full bar, will have happy hour drinks from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., with live music or DJs. Additional performances from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. will follow.

The heated cube is also set to feature a variety of art workshops on Saturdays, including drawing with New Yorker cartoonist Carolita Johnson, as well as late-night music. Bands slated to perform include the Third Eye Orchestra and Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog.

Each Sunday, the tent will turn into a “music market” with vendors selling a variety of vinyl records and rare recordings from noon to 5 p.m.

Mondays through Wednesdays, the venue will host a variety of kid-centric events, in conjunction with FiDi Families, including more movies and craft workshops.
