Elvis is back in the building at The Picture House — this time at the Pelham theater. And I’m going on the record to say that Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis is the best movie of the summer! This movie has everything you’re looking for in great summer entertainment, and I hope that the momentum keeps going into [...]

With summer camp at The Picture House coming up in August, we’ve been thinking about some of our favorite camp movies! Get in a summer mood (while staying cool indoors) with these staff picks! Meatballs (PG) — Clay Bushong, Director of Programming & Business Development No movie says summer camp more than Meatballs. Marking both [...]

With our Centennial behind us and programming in full swing at Bronxville and Pelham, this fall will be a time for reviving old traditions and inaugurating new ones.

There have [...]

My life revolved around pool club, Toni Braxton’s “Un-Break My Heart,” and the Dear America series, hands perma-stained with blue ice pop, forever belting out pop [...]

From the rainbow feather boas to the flags draped as capes to the glittery tutus, Pride season screams for self-expression. It’s a moment to be fully queer and celebrated, whether you’re flaunting your sparkle at parades and parties, or calling up loved ones to cheer them on for being themselves.

With audiences chomping at the bit for some magic on the [...]
