Program Description

Event Details

Join film and TV historian Brian Rose, for a multimedia presentation about New York City in the movies.  For more than 125 years, filmmakers have been drawn to the dynamic vitality of New York City. Its dramatic architecture, its diverse neighborhoods and populations, its universally recognized landmarks, its 24/7 lifestyle, and its 8 million stories have helped make the city a featured player in more than 17,000 movies—including such memorable films as King Kong, Naked City, On the Town, West Side Story, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Taxi Driver, Wall Street, and Do the Right Thing. Illustrated with more than 50 clips, this presentation demonstrates the changing ways New York has been captured on film, and why it still remains a star attraction today.

In honor of Flag Day the local VFW Post 1819 will perform a special flag ceremony at the start of the program.
