Outreach

The Jacob Burns Film Center is pleased to offer the following programs in our community:

Senior Programs
The JBFC invites seniors from retirement communities and senior citizen centers to attend Senior Movie Matinees four times a year. When they arrive at the theater, participants will be able to choose from such favorites as American Harmony, Man on Wire, or a film from our regular programming. Cookies and soda are served after the screenings. The program often features special guests. For more information, contact Abby Popper at 914.773.7663, ext. 424, or send email to apopper@burnsfilmcenter.org

Community Support
The JBFC is pleased to support other local non-profit organizations in their fundraising efforts with a silent auction or raffle donation. More info...

Anniversary Screenings
We celebrate our anniversary each year with the thousands of people who help to make our dream a reality. The Jacob Burns Film Center is pleased to invite all members to special Anniversary Screenings throughout the month of June. These screenings are one way we thank our members for their ongoing support of our film, education, and community outreach programs.

Reel Talk
Reel Talk provides an opportunity for moviegoers to enjoy informal, thought-provoking discussions facilitated by a JBFC staff member after watching a film. This program reflects the Film Center’s mission to expand the film-going experience through sharing ideas. Reel Talk screenings include a short introduction that may cover background on the film, director, and the period in which the film was made, as well as a few aspects of the film worthy of special attention. Topics for discussion are determined by the audience. The discussion is free to ticket buyers.
