What’s happening at The Picture House

Celebrate 100 Years of The Picture House

by Laura deBuys

Have I mentioned it’s our Centennial?

Our centennial year began in March of 2021 with a virtual event in honor of the 100th birthday of the 1921 Pelham theater. And now, after a year of challenge and surprise, we are weeks away from the final centennial event — a celebration of TWO theaters born in the 1920s, The Picture House Bronxville and The Picture House Pelham.  

The Centennial Celebration will celebrate the 100-year survival of these two gems as well as the exciting prospects for them in the century to come as the home of The Picture House Regional Film Center. In doing so we are honoring Senator Chuck Schumer — his Save Our Stages legislation enabled us to survive a 51-week closure in Pelham and build enough community support to rescue the Bronxville theater after being closed for nearly 2 years; Janet Langsam, the CEO of ArtsWestchester, has spent decades reshaping the arts in Westchester County and stood by The Picture House throughout; and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, recipient of this year’s Cicely Tyson Award, is a courageous and talented artist — an icon for the century to come. 

So join us!! Help us celebrate our first century and our second — and these three remarkable Picture House Heroes. Learn more and get your tickets.
