The Secret Cinema began in 1992 to expose new audiences to neglected films of all kinds. Film collector and programmer Jay Schwartz brings audiences a whole pantheon of "low-brow" yet fascinating genres: ephemeral genres such as educational, industrial and sponsored films, rare theatrical shorts & cartoons, and a lot more. Jay shows his collection of 16mm films to audiences in his home town of Philadelphia and across the world. Venues have ranged from living rooms to a 1,000-seat theatre, from universities to historic Eastern State Penitentiary and Laurel Hill Cemetery. Titles may include The Story of Bubblegum and The Stranger at our Door, along with other surprises.
Join us for a film program like nothing you've ever seen! With an introduction by Jay Schwartz.
