State Theatre Announces Free Movies Throughout Summer of 2016

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- This summer the State Theatre is proud to announce the return of the Free Summer Movies Series, sponsored by Boraie Development and The Provident Bank Foundation. Movies featured in the series include Frozen on July 12, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial on July 19, Despicable Me 2 on July 26, Babe on August 2, Monsters University on August 9, and Aladdin on August 16.

All six movies are free of charge to the community, offering young people the chance to enjoy their favorite films with their families, summer camps, and other groups in the opulent surroundings of the State Theatre, a historic 1921 movie palace that has become one of New Jersey’s preeminent venues for live performance.

“We are proud to once again sponsor this wonderful series, giving local families and young people the chance to see movies for free in this remarkable historic venue,” commented Hiam Boraie, Vice President of Boraie Development.

Jane Kurek, Executive Director of The Provident Bank Foundation, sponsor of the State Theatre’s Community Access Initiative, commented, “We are thrilled to help make it possible for families of all backgrounds to have these exciting State Theatre experiences free of charge this summer.”

“We are so happy to bring back the summer movie series this year with an expanded lineup of six films,” added Anna Marie Gewirtz, State Theatre Vice President of Development & Strategic Partnerships. “As part of our mission we are committed to presenting affordable family-friendly programming. Our year-round Community Access Initiative invites our community to enjoy a variety of free events at the State Theatre. With the generosity of Boraie Development and The Provident Bank Foundation, we will reach a larger number of families this summer—around 7,500 people.”

2018 International Film Festival Brings 4 Award Winning Foreign Films To Vineland
(VINELAND, NJ) -- Enjoy four highly-acclaimed award-winning recent foreign films representing diverse cultures at the 2018 International Film Festival, starting Monday, November 26, at the Levoy Theatre, 126-130 N. High St., Millville, NJ. The four films—A Fantastic Woman, The Interpreter, 1945, and Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me—will introduce the theatergoer to the universality of themes that are common to Jewish and other international themes.

John T. LaBarbera Presents Charlie Chaplin's “The Immigrant” with New Original Score
(TEANECK, NJ) -- Performer, composer, and author John T. LaBarbera performs his original score for Charlie Chaplin’s The Immigrant at the Puffin Cultural Forum in Teaneck on October 28 at 4:00pm. LaBarbera’s score creates an emotional atmosphere through the melodic themes that are reminiscent of the Italian immigrant music published during the early 20th century. Chaplin’s 1917 comedy about his own experiences as an immigrant draws on parallels of the popular songs of Tin Pan Alley which inform LaBarbera’s composition, highlighting the comedic and romantic aspects of the film through ragtime style, slapstick references, and melodic leitmotif that adorn the film’s narrative.
NJSO presents Star Wars: A New Hope in concert on Thanksgiving weekend
(NEWARK, NJ) --The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra presents screenings of the complete film Star Wars: A New Hope with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ musical scores performed live on Thanksgiving weekend, November 23–25. Performances take place in Red Bank, Newark, and New Brunswick.

Basie Center Celebrates Dia De Los Muertos With "Coco" Benefit Screening And Community Ofrenda
(RED BANK, NJ) -- The nonprofit Count Basie Center for the Arts will present a big-screen showing of Disney’s Coco as part of its annual celebration of Dia de los Muertos, sponsored by Basie’s partner program Calpulli Mexican Dance Company. The screening, which takes place on Saturday, November 3 at 11:00am, will also serve as a fundraiser for the Red Bank Borough School District, which will receive half of all tickets sold.


REVIEW: "Cold War"
Back in 2006, German cinema scored something of a breakout global hit with Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s The Lives of Others, which followed the travails of a group of disgruntled, pro-western artists in communist era East Germany. At the time I couldn’t help viewing the protagonists of Von Donnersmarck’s drama as the sort of people who would be just as discontented with their lot if they found themselves living in the capitalist west. The grass is always greener on the other side.
Baba Babee Skazala
Among the many intriguing films being screened at New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2018, one title immediately caught our eye — Baba Babee Skazala: Grandmother Told Grandmother.  
NJ Film Fest Preview: October 2018
(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- The New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2018 runs from September 14 to October 26 on the Rutgers University Campus in New Brunswick, NJ. Showcasing new international films, American independent features, animation, experimental and short subjects, and cutting-edge documentaries, the New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2018 will feature over 30 film screenings.  
REVIEW: "Black 47"
In a year that has offered cinemagoers culturally distinctive takes on the western genre from countries as disparate as Australia (Sweet Country), Indonesia (Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts) and South Africa (Five Fingers for Marseille), it’s no surprise to find Irish cinema adopting the tropes of that most traditionally American of genres.
