One of the most anticipated cinephile events of the year returned in full force this summer, after having to cancel in 2020. Cannes is back and having had to wait an additional year for this slate of films, we’re even more eager than usual to hear the buzz about (and of course eventually see) the [...]

On Thursday, we opened Black Widow on the big screen in the Main Hall to our largest audience since reopening in March. Marvel’s much buzzed-about blockbuster, with an all-star cast including Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, and others, was undoubtedly the main attraction, but seeing so many more faces in our theater [...]

Long holiday weekends like the Fourth of July are perfect for lazy days spent catching up with friends and family and nights that are made for movies. Whether you’re beating the heat in the cool, new air conditioning at The Picture House, streaming a family favorite at home, or maybe even setting up a make-shift [...]

In 2016, The Picture House launched our first Documentary Intensive Camp for high school students in our satellite film lab on Wolfs Lane in downtown Pelham. Every year since then, this week-long camp has provided high school students with the opportunity to not only learn about documentary filmmaking from a professional filmmaker, but to give [...]

Yesterday, Saturday, June 19th, The Picture House joined the Village of Pelham Council on the Arts, the Pelham Art Center, the Pelham Chamber of Commerce, and student artists from Pelham Memorial High School to commemorate Juneteenth in the first year of it being recognized as a federal holiday.

The Picture House is home to Pelham’s longest-running, live improv group, The Pelicants. This group is made up of high school students and led by the hilarious, and very-generous-with-his-time, Pelham resident Josh Wallach. The Pelicants typically rehearse in our theater on Tuesday nights throughout the school year, and perform on our stage and at Rockwell’s [...]

The Picture House joins others around the world in celebrating Pride Month and with it the LBGTQ+ community. While Hollywood has been painfully slow in telling the stories of LBGTQ+ people, there have been some notable exceptions in recent years with movies like Moonlight, Call Me By Your Name, and Carol finding critical acclaim and wide recognition. Unarguably, more progress [...]

After a year of delays and setbacks, Hollywood is ready to roar back to the big screen. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer and with it comes parades, barbecues with family and friends, excursions to the beach or pool (if you’re lucky), and for those of us who love movies, the anticipation of [...]

There is a great deal of good news in the movie business these days. Restrictions are lifting, more great movies are becoming available, and The Picture House has a brand-new HVAC system in the Main Hall!  It’s cool! It’s quiet! It’s MERV-13 filtered! It’s destined to be our blockbuster hit of the season!  But, fabulous air [...]
