PELHAM, N.Y. – The Picture House Regional Film Center will celebrate the past decade and look forward to the next ten years at “The Tenth! – Celebrating What a Decade Can Do” Friday, May 15, from 7 p.m.to midnight at the Hampshire Country Club in Mamaroneck.
Picture House co-founder Ann Sorice and filmmaker Matthew Heineman will be this year’s honorees at the fundraiser commemorating the tenth anniversary of the purchase of the 1921 theater.
“Ten years ago, when concerned citizens bought the 1921 Pelham Picture House, they had a vision of an innovative film center for Southern Westchester and the Bronx providing the best in independent, documentary, and international cinema — plus a robust film education program for students of all ages,” said Laura deBuys, Picture House executive director.
“Today, thanks to the efforts and contributions of members and supporters, that vision has become a reality,” she continued.
Sorice will receive the Harold Lloyd Commitment to Community Award at the event.
Heineman will receive the Harold Lloyd Next Generation Filmmaker Award. Heineman is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker who just won the 2015 Sundance Film Festival award for best directing of a U.S. documentary, for his film “Cartel Land.”
“The Tenth!” will kick-off with cocktails, followed by dinner, auctions and dancing.
The silent and live auctions will feature a number of highly-sought after items including four tickets to a sold-out Taylor Swift concert; a parking space in Manhattan for one-year; two tickets to Z-100’s sold-out Jingle Ball; two VIP passes to the three-day Mountain Jam Music Festival at Hunter Mountain featuring the Black Keys, Robert Plant, Alabama Shakes and more; plus rounds of golf at exclusive country clubs, including Winged Foot, and a Golden Globes party at The Picture House.
Tickets to “The Tenth!” start at $250 per person and are available for purchase here or by calling (914)-738-3161.
The Hampshire Club is at 1025 Cove Road, Mamaroneck.
