Movie Magic Series


Larger-than-life on the glorious big screen.

There is nothing like sitting in the dark with strangers, experiencing the power of storytelling together. Although all films benefit from the immersive theater experience, this series highlights those movies which really must be shown on the big screen to be fully appreciated. Our annual #MovieMagic favorites include the stunning feats of courage and athleticism on display in Mountainfilm on Tour and the ingenuity of the Animation Show of Shows. These programs are great for older kids, but we've added a few titles for our youngest movielovers as well. The Wizard of Oz is 80 years young and still dazzling families worldwide with its timeless songs and heartfelt message. We are also presenting two programs from the New York International Children's Film Festival, which offer animated and live-action shorts from across the globe that are geared toward younger kids (Kid Flicks 1: Ages 3-7; Kid Flicks 2: Ages 8+), but will capture the imaginations of the whole family!

And this term, we've also curated a mini-series that reflects on movies about moviemaking, a topic cinema has continued to revisit year after year from its inception. This series includes Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino's love letter to the 1960's movie business; a tribute to a female film pioneer in Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy- Blaché; the Italian classic Cinema Paradiso about the lifelong love of the movies;  a political satire unfolds on the set of a Palestinian soap opera in Tel Aviv on Fire; and finally, Paul Anton Smith captures the thrill of the movie-going experience in his masterful feature-length montage, Have You Seen My Movie?
