Fall — my favorite time of the year. The cool crisp air, apple cider donuts, and new movie trailers!  No matter the season, one of my all-time favorite things to do is watch previews. A movie trailer is a sales pitch like no other, and it gets me every time. The only comparison to the satisfaction [...]

On Tuesday, September 28th, Senior Cinema returns to The Picture House with The Eyes of Tammy Faye, starring Academy Award nominees Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield! The highly-popular program — made possible in part by a grant from ConEdison — offers seniors a free matinee on Tuesday afternoons, providing a great way to connect with [...]

This summer The Picture House was pleased to host summer camps in our theaters once again. It was a welcome sight to see busy students exercising their creativity and making films together after a year away. Campers in our Movie Making program wrote, acted in, and directed The Prince, the Princess, and the Portals, an [...]

Like the rest of our national holidays, Labor Day gives us a much-appreciated Monday off. It might be our most important reprieve from work, given that Labor Day honors the American worker, especially those who fought for the eight-hour work day and the creation of the weekend. So what better way to spend this hard-won [...]

Pig is probably not the movie you’re expecting it to be. A Nicolas Cage vehicle in which he plays a man out for revenge after his beloved pig is kidnapped seems like it’s going to be something we’ve seen before — a Taken (in which Liam Neeson’s daughter is abducted) or a John Wick (in [...]

The Picture House turns 100 this year. And what a year (and more) it has been! Thanks to generous members and donors and several loans and grants, we have made it through the longest closure in our theater’s history. We are proud to welcome you safely back to the theater as we take all we [...]

Take a slow, deep breath. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Even close your eyes while you do it. The rest of this post will be here waiting when you’re done.  Are you feeling more relaxed?  Sunday, August 15 is National Relaxation Day, and, even if it hasn’t been the summer some of [...]

The Green Knight was one of spring 2020’s most anticipated films, scheduled to premiere at South by Southwest in mid-March followed by a May release. No need to tell you what happened next.  Director David Lowery used part of his time during the pandemic to recut The Green Knight, to step away from what he [...]

Last Tuesday, The Picture House hosted an Olympic viewing party to watch Pelhamite Kate Douglass compete in the 200-meter individual medley. Kate’s race was at 10:45 pm, it was pretty late for a week night and we just weren’t sure anyone would come… At 9:00 pm, our theater started filling up with folks from all [...]

Disney’s newest thrill ride come to life is Jungle Cruise, an action-adventure film that sees Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson take a ride into the heart of the Amazon in search of a tree whose healing properties could revolutionize medicine. To find the tree they must face the dangers of the jungle and come up [...]
