Movies Then & Now: Theatres Along the Corridor
October 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us to discuss moviemaking at Route 1’s classic theatres, including the historic Greenbelt Cinema (formerly Old Greenbelt Theatre) from Executive Director Caitlin McGrath. 2023 marks the 85th anniversary of Greenbelt, and the original theater was recently renovated and updated. Learn about the movie industry from the early days of silent films to modern cinema with animation and special effects. Hear what is in store for the future with the advent of streaming movies on demand, the writers’ strike and artificial intelligence, as well as the impact of this summer’s “Barbenheimer” phenomenon.
Corridor Conversations are organized by Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park, and Explorations on Aging.
