Cinema Classroom at the Avalon

Cinema Classroom complements what students learn in the classroom, using the visual and dramatic medium of film to deepen students’ understanding and promote critical thinking. After a successful inaugural year, Cinema Classroom at the Avalon returns with an expanded program for our 2014-15 series!

The four films in the 2014-15 series illuminate the theme of social justice, with powerful examples selected from across recent world history.

Each screening will be hosted by a moderator who will lead the students in a dynamic post-film discussion.

As before, all screenings will be completely FREE for attendees and held in the Avalon’s historic nonprofit theater. Each program includes two screening days per film – one for 7th-8th grades and the other for 9th-10th. Space is limited, so register today!

Download our brochure to learn more about the films in this year’s program.

All programs are free, but registration is required as space is limited. Contact Sarah Pokempner for more information at 202-966-2149 or
