The Picture House is delighted to have reopened the theater – but we are still offering virtual screenings of must-see films. When you watch a virtual screening, you will be taken to the distributor’s viewing site, but rest assured, just as when you’re in the theater, a portion of your ticket price supports The Picture House and helps us keep going. Thank you! (By the way, it’s our 100th birthday – visit thepicturehouse.org/centennial to see what’s going on!)
Who Gets to Call it Art?
This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler champions the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who are not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler’s contributions to the art world — including his landmark exhibition “New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rated NR, 80 minutes.
