Cultural Screenings

Cultural Screenings, films that showcase music, dance and art around the world, are screened on the third Thursday of each month. Think of this series as armchair travel with a cultural bent, a larger-than-life window on places, exhibits and shows you may wonder about but not be able to visit first-hand.

Get ready for these new offerings:

Nov. 5The Magic Flute, Mozart’s fantastic opera, which is both sung and spoken.

Nov. 9 & Nov. 19La Bohème, Puccini’s opera of relationships based on vignettes of those living in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1850s.

Nov. 12L’Opera, a look at backstage mayhem at the Paris Opera under a new director, including the announcement of a strike, the arrival of a bull in a supporting role along, a promising young singer colliding with a star—and even darker circumstances in which the show must go on.

Nov. 30 & Dec. 10The Impressionists and the Man Who Made Them—A celebration of the still-fresh art of Impressionists Manet, Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Renoir and Sisley, all captured in high-definition. The documentary also tells of Paul Durand-Ruel, the entrepreneur who showcased these talents to the world.
