Staff Picks

Dreams on Screen: Four Surreal Shorts

Monday, July 13 at 7:30pm

UN CHIEN ANDALOU (Dali & Bunuel), DESTINO (Dali & Disney), MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON(Maya Deren), LA JETÉE (Chris Marker)

Selected by Ted Cavooris, Associate Director of Development: These short films represent some of my favorite pieces of avant-garde cinema. While the films each have their own voice, there is a strain of surrealism that unites them, as well as a strong push to expand on what a film can be. The opportunity to sit in the dark and lose ourselves in a dream, so central to the cinema, is something that we take for granted all too often. The chance to have this experience together is something that I’m honored to be able to share with the CAC.

Regular admission $12/Public. Tickets available at the door or online

Upcoming Anything But Silent:

The Cat and the Canary

Wednesday, October 28 at 7:30pm

1927  Thriller/Drama  1h 48m

The relatives of Cyrus West gather at his estate on the 20th anniversary of his death to hear the reading of his will. Annabelle West (Laura La Plante) is named the heir to Cyrus' fortune, under the condition that she is declared sane by a doctor (Lucien Littlefield). Later in the evening, the family is informed that a dangerously insane man known at "the Cat" is on the loose in the area. When Cyrus' lawyer (Tully Marshall) is found dead, Annabelle fears she is the next target. Director: Paul Leni


The Family Secret

Tuesday, November 17 at 7:30pm

1924. USA. Directed by William A. Seiter. Screenplay by Lois Zellner, based on a story by Frances Hodgson Burnett. With Baby Peggy Montgomery (Diana Serra Cary), Gladys Hulette, Edward Earle. Adapted from a children’s book by Burnett (The Little Princess, The Secret Garden), this 1924 feature was a vehicle for the child star Baby Peggy, who, as Diana Serra Carey, remains very much with us today at the age of 96. A typical Burnett tale of a traumatic childhood leading to a compensatory discovery of independence and imagination, the material makes a surprisingly good fit for its young director, Seiter, who would go on to become one of Hollywood’s most accomplished directors of character comedy (Sing and Like It, If You Could Only Cook). Preserved by The Library of Congress; courtesy Universal Pictures.


Chaplin Mutuals

Tuesday, December 8 at 7:30pm

An evening of classic Charlie Chaplin shorts, seen in brand new archival 2K digital restorations, sourced and scanned from multiple 35mm prints from all over the world that will make these classic hilarious films look like new!

In 1916, the Mutual Film Corporation built Charles Chaplin his own studio and he entered a fruitful twelve-month period which he acknowledged to be one of the most inventive and liberating of his career. Chaplin had full control over casting, scripting and directing. The resulting movies feature “the little tramp” in situations that make for some of Chaplin’s funniest works.


The mission of the Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
