STRAND spotlight

Join us for 100 YEARS OF MOVIES, a series of films spanning the past century!

This series presents films from every decade the Strand has been in operation, chosen for how they represented the filmmaking style and perspectives of their time. In addition to well-known films, the titles will include lesser-known, high quality releases that have been overlooked, as well as underrepresented movies and directors. The films were curated by Alicia Malone, a host on Turner Classic Movies (TCM); and Strand House Manager Liz McLeod, also a film historian. Each film will be introduced by Malone or McLeod, or a special guest presenter.

Visit our FILMS page to see what's coming up next!
