Since 1921, The Picture House—the oldest, continuously running movie theater in Westchester County— has served as a cultural center and community hub. Today, after an extensive renovation and the addition of state of the art technology, The Picture House Regional Film Center shows the best in new, independent and classic cinema and provides students of all ages with the opportunity to learn about the art, science and business of film.
The five-part Worldview film series explores — through the lens of film — how we learn about people and issues outside of our daily sphere of reference and what our responsibility is to the global society at large. Films are recent releases— both documentary and narrative, international and domestic—that expose the audience to a perspective of a culture, an issue, or an event that is exceptional in its depth, access, or nuance. The series consists of daytime educational screenings and discussions for middle and high school students from Westchester and the Bronx plus an evening public screening and post-film discussion with a well-known moderator and guests.
