For those staying on campus during fall break and who enjoy film, the Capitol Theatre in Rome, N.Y., will be screening locally produced short films including animated films created last year in Hamilton’s film animation class on Thursday, Oct. 17. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. and also includes short features created by Pratt students at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute as well as 22 films and videos in 110 minutes from The Association of Moving Image Archivists. According to the Capitol Theatre, “This cinematic Cabinet of Wonders features a wonderful promotion for a lost Thai film, a bizarre anti-drug commercial with Alice in Wonderland, a banned experimental film from Albania, Josephine Baker dancing the Charleston in wooden clogs, a commercial to buy your own Stonewall action figures, and many more!”
Tickets to the theatre event, located at 220 W Dominick St, Rome, N.Y., may be obtained here. They are $7 for students and $8 for adults. The Capitol Theatre is part of the Rome Capitol Arts Complex.
