This Pride Month, bring the whole family together to celebrate the joy of being true to oneself! These films are great choices to watch year-round, but during Pride Month they are also a reminder of why Pride exists — so that everyone, young and old, can be themselves, experience love, and find joy. There have [...]

I will never forget the first time I saw Uma Thurman.  It was 1997: a summer I spent the majority of wearing bell bottom jeans and playing Pokémon Red. 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. As a trans person, it’s [...]

I was a late bloomer. At 27, over the course of a pressure-cooker summer, I fell in love with a guy for the first time and eventually came out. The experience later became the basis for my memoir Out East. People often ask, what’s it like baring your soul in book form? The honest answer: [...]

After two long, challenging years we can finally say with confidence that the summer blockbuster is back with a vengeance!  While Memorial Day weekend traditionally kicks off the unofficial start of summer, some of the season’s most anticipated blockbusters arrived even earlier this year.

Mayer) or had other key roles in production, directing, screenwriting, and more. Books like An Empire of Their Own by Neal Gabler and Hollywood’s Chosen People: The Jewish Experience [...]

We talk about the Picture House mission having three focus areas: film, education, and community. At the core of that community are our members. Our members come from all over Westchester, from the Bronx, and a few brave and dedicated souls from the further reaches of New York City, the Hudson Valley, and Connecticut. Their [...]

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and something to celebrate this month is the number of excellent films by and about the AAPI community that have come out in recent years. There’s Jon M. Chu’s lavish blockbuster romance Crazy Rich Asians, Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, about an American-raised woman wrestling with familial [...]

This past Thursday, we celebrated Earth Day, as we have in years past, with a free community screening of a movie addressing an important environmental issue in partnership with local non-profit organizations. This year, we teamed up with our friends from EcoPel and the Rotary Club to invite the public to watch Kiss the Ground, [...]
