Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.
Martin Scorcese

our educational programming aims to promote the following:

 

 

  • an opportunity to learn and appreciate films and filmmaking
  • an understanding and learning experience for storytelling through audio and visual means
  • a gateway to exploring complex ideas and help children discover other’s viewpoints and ways of looking at the world
  • exposure to the artistry and storytelling world of the moving image beyond the commercial multiplex, television, and YouTube

Educators can choose from the following opportunities:

 

Classic Film Field Trips

• Pre- and Post-Screening Activities aligned to curriculum standards to deepen student understanding of content, theme, and cinematic technique

Selections may include To Kill A Mockingbird, The Outsiders, Macbeth (1971), Lord of the Flies, Romeo & Juliet, Jane Eyre, O Brother Where Art Thou (The Odyssey), Ex Machina (Frankenstein), Pride & Prejudice, or anything at all you might want to screen

Current Film Field Trips

Teachers can bring students to special daytime showings of current films. The experience can be potentially enhanced in these ways:
• Pre- and Post-Screening Activities aligned to curriculum standards to deepen student understanding of content, theme, and cinematic technique
• Post-Film Discussion with a facilitator who serves as an “expert” on the content, theme, or cinematic technique

Films opening in the Fall include Colette, The Old Man and The Gun, Monsters and Men, Wildlife, Can You Ever Forgive Me?. Beautiful Boy, Blaze, Free Solo and more
