Originally built as a 1025-seat movie palace by Publix Pictures, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures, the Peekskill Paramount Theatre first opened its doors to the public on June 27, 1930.
The Inaugural program featured an overture by the Paramount Symphony Orchestra, an appearance by the village mayor, and “A Paramount All-Talking Picture”, The Big Pond, starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert. Publix Theatres was recognized as a leader in the theatre building industry, and the Peekskill Paramount was constructed as a state-of-the-art facility for the times. The Paramount building is a designated Westchester County Landmark, declared eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Paramount prospered for decades despite the Depression and World War II. However, it was the advent of shopping malls and television that brought on its demise as a movie theatre. Paramount sold the building in 1973. Eventually the building was acquired by the City of Peekskill in 1977 due to a tax default.
The Peekskill Paramount Center for the Performing Arts presented its first series of performances in the spring of 1982. Its mission was to bring cultural and educational programming to the northern Westchester and Putnam County area at affordable prices. Since 1982, what was a grass roots “Save the Paramount” campaign has grown to become a true center for the arts, with live performances, arts-in-education programs, films, and visual art exhibitions, serving over 50,000 people annually.
The Picture House presents the best in independent, international, documentary, and classic cinema in a beautifully restored 1921 theater. As southern Westchester’s nonprofit alternative to commercial multiplex theaters, we invite actors, directors, screenwriters, producers, critics, and others to engage with our audiences.
"The great old movie houses of the past have largely been carved up, torn down, or turned into something completely different. As a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of one of few surviving – and still operating – single-screen theaters, we work to ensure that, with a history of over 90 years, The Picture House will continue to entertain audiences for generations to come."
The Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC) is a nonprofit educational and cultural institution dedicated to presenting the best of independent, documentary, and world cinema; promoting 21st century literacy; and making film a vibrant part of the community.

The Jacob Burns Film Center Theater is on the site of the former Rome Theater at 364 Manville Road in Pleasantville, NY. The original 1925 theater was renovated and expanded in 2001 to create an 18,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility with three theaters.

Kensico Dam Plaza, a 98-acre property, is located at Bronx River Parkway, Valhalla, NY 10595 in Westchester County. Kensico Dam Plaza is located at the base of the Kensico Dam built under the old dam that formed Lake Kensico, using stone taken from the adjacent Cranberry Lake Park.
Kensico dam was completed in 1915. It is 300 feet high and 1830 feet long, and forms the reservoir that contains 29,000 million gallons of water per day. It was acquired as parkland in 1963 from the New York City Watershed Commission and remains the property of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation.
Kensico gets its name from the Siwanoy sachem, "Cokenseko". It is 300 feet high and 1830 feet long. It forms the reservoir that contains 29,000 million gallons of water per day. The dam was built under the old dam that formed Lake Kensico, using stone taken from the adjacent Cranberry Lake Park. The park provides a unique setting for a wide variety of activities including ethnic celebrations, concerts, antiques shows, arts and craft shows, and nature study.

The Bard Music Festival is located at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY 12504 in Dutchess County.
From Bard Music Festival
History of the Festival "The Bard Music Festival was founded in 1990 to promote new ways of understanding and presenting the history of music to a contemporary audience. Each year, a single composer is chosen as the main subject. The biography of the composer, the influences and consequences of that composer's achievement, and all aspects of the musical culture surrounding the time and place of the composer's life are explored. Perhaps the most important dimensions of the festival are the ways in which it links music to the worlds of literature, painting, theater, philosophy, and politics and brings two kinds of audience together: those with a long history of interest in concert life and first-time listeners, who find the festival an ideal place to learn about and enjoy the riches of our musical past.
"The festival also seeks to bridge the worlds of performance and scholarship in new and exciting ways. As a result of this collaboration, each concert is curated and the concert format varies, so that different genres and instrumental groupings appear in a single program, breaking the mold of the standard vocal recital, piano recital, or quartet concert. Concerts are complemented by informative preconcert talks, panel discussions by renowned musicians and scholars, and special events. In addition, each season Princeton University Press publishes a book of essays, translations, and correspondence relating to the festival’s central figure.
"The Bard Music Festival weekends include orchestral concerts by the American Symphony Orchestra, chamber and choral music performances, panel discussions, and lectures by noted scholars."

The Ridgefield Playhouse is dedicated to serving Ridgefield, Connecticut and nearby communities in the Performing Arts. Designed in 1938, the auditorium in "the old high school" was once the center of Ridgefield's cultural life. During World War II, residents had the privilege of twice hearing the legendary Arturo Toscanini conduct here. In its new life, The Ridgefield Playhouse has been designed to embrace its former role and more. In an age of multiplexes and stadiums, what a pleasure to be in an impeccably renovated, historic theater with near-perfect acoustics!
Since our opening, enthusiastic, sold-out audiences have enjoyed Peter Yarrow, Marcel Marceau, Barbara Cook, Moscow Boys Choir, Joan Baez, and The Bacon Brothers. Film-goers have seen a range of movies from Oscar-winners such as Traffic and Chocolat to family fare to our international film series. Community events such as the Ridgefield High School Orchestra Concert and the Annual Town Meeting found a new home at The Playhouse.
While we can all agree with Shakespeare that "the play's the thing," we also know that this beautiful theater adds a great deal to the experience of a performance or movie. In an age of multiplexes and stadiums, what a pleasure to be in an impeccably renovated, historic theater with near-perfect acoustics!
Notable Beginnings, Legendary Performances Designed in 1938, the auditorium in "the old high school" was at one time the center of Ridgefield's cultural life. In its heyday, before being abandoned in 1972, it was home to school performances as well as community events and town meetings. During World War II, residents had the privilege of twice hearing the legendary Arturo Toscanini conduct here.
In its new life, The Ridgefield Playhouse has been designed to embrace its former role and more. The interior preserves the hall's excellent acoustics that make it an ideal venue for musical performance and live theater. At the same time, retractable draperies cover the walls enabling the "deadening" effect needed to show movies. Thanks to a generous legacy from Patricia Schuster, founder of the Ridgefield Studio of Classical Ballet, the stage was built to have the resilience necessary for dance performances. Parts of the old stage rigging have been preserved and supplemented to enable use of the stage's large fly space. Stage lights and a state-of-the-art sound system have been installed.
Echoing the importance of the town of Ridgefield in the theater's life is a hand-painted mural covering the lobby walls with familiar scenes of historic Ridgefield. The mural, a gift from a Ridgefield couple, was created by a local artist. Other murals enliven the interior of the performance area as well as the entryway to The Playhouse; all were gifts of Playhouse supporters. Press blue button to explore the Ridgefield Playhouse."

America’s pre-eminent film presentation organization, The Film Society of Lincoln Center was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international cinema, to recognize and support new filmmakers, and to enhance awareness, accessibility and understanding of the art among a broad and diverse film going audience.

Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson – over the last four decades there is scarcely a major director who has not been introduced to American audiences by the Film Society.

Filmsite.org is an award-winning, unique resource for classic film buffs and all who are interested in films. Filmsite.org includes interpretive
and detailed plot synopses, review commentary, an unparalleled wealth of film reference material, and historical background for hundreds of
classic Hollywood/American and other English-language films in the last century.
Introduction to Filmsite
Films, also known as movies, motion pictures, flicks, the pictures, and the cinema, are undoubtedly the most influential art form of the 20th
century. From the early days of Hollywood to the high-tech cinema of today, the silver screen has projected our dreams and fantasies,
presented both glamour and works of social conscience, and served as our collective memory. Following is just a small sampling of the extensive
information available on www.Filmsite.org:
Greatest Films Lists - The Best
The English-language films chosen here repeatedly appear on all-time best film lists - arguably, there is reasonable consensus by most film
historians, critics and reviewers that they are among cinema's most critically-acclaimed, significant "must-see" films (of predominantly
Hollywood-American output, although there are other English-language films included).
"Greatest Films" Lists
100 Greatest Films, are film selections that have undoubtedly left an indelible mark upon our lives and reflect the defining moments of the last
100 years - films that give us pieces of time we can never forget. Detailed analysis and synopses for each of the Greatest Films include
memorable movie quotes and lines of dialogue, and great moments or scenes. Another 100 Greatest Films supplements the original list because it
was almost impossible to be limited to only 100 Greatest Films. Third 100 Greatest Films adds an additional selection of 100 more films, to make a total of 300 Greatest Films for consideration.
Film genres are various forms or identifiable types, categories, classifications or groups of films that are recurring and have similar, familiar or instantly-recognizable patterns, syntax, film techniques or conventions - that include one or more of the following: settings (and props), content and subject matter, themes, period, plot, central narrative events, motifs, styles, structures, situations, recurring icons (e.g., six-guns and
ten-gallon hats in Westerns), stock characters (or characterizations), and stars. Many films straddle several film genres.

Greatest Film Scenes & Moments:
In the history of cinema, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of fabled, Memorable Moments and Scenes from a wide range of films
(composed of either a few seconds long, a short sequence, or a long extended scene). They are our memories of segments of films that have
achieved a life of their own. They compel us to remember and 'relive' the moment, either with fondness or with fear. For fun, take a Greatest

Watching a film's moving image, other than just for pure entertainment's sake, is usually enhanced by viewing it with an informed awareness of
how a film works, and with some understanding, skill and background training in the elements of the craft of film-making. Each film viewer or
movie-goer should strive to be a 'critic' (in the best and most general sense of the word) and be receptive to the full experience. Viewing a film
critically and attentively means to realize cinema with greater thought and awareness, and to elevate one's celluloid experience. It also means
possessing an informed knowledge of the film's complex and dense 'language,' its conventions, codes, symbols, cinematic attributes, and other
