PELHAM, N.Y. – The Picture House is offering films, special events and educational workshops during the entire month of October.
All events take place at The Picture House unless otherwise specified.
Friday, Oct 10 at 7 p.m.
30th Anniversary Screening of "Ghostbusters." Join The Picture House and PACT for a family night out in Pelham for the 30th anniversary screening of the family favorite classic, “Ghostbusters.” Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, the late Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson star as a quartet of Manhattan-based “paranormal investigators.” When their government grants run out, the former three go into business as The Ghostbusters, later hiring Hudson. Armed with electronic paraphernalia, the team is spectacularly successful, ridding The Big Apple of dozens of ghoulies, ghosties and long-legged beasties. Tickets are $5 per person and $20 per family. Friday, Oct. 17 at 9 p.m.

The Picture House, the National Italian American Foundation and WETA, the flagship public broadcasting station in the nation’s capital, invite participants to a special advance screening and discussion of a new film for PBS, “The Italian Americans.” Narrated by actor Stanley Tucci, the series explores the evolution of Italian Americans from the late 19th century to today, from “outsiders” once viewed with suspicion and mistrust, to some of the most prominent leaders of business, politics and the arts today. Open to the public, admission is free and reservations are required. Reserve tickets at The Picture House website here or email email@example.com. Friday, Oct. 31 at 10 p.m. and midnight Halloween Screening of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Celebrate Halloween with a loving couple, a few lost monsters and a sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania.
