The Jewish Museum

The film explores the excellence in taste and preservation of these works, the family behind the collection, and the institution’s history and dedication to art scholarship.

St. George Theatre

Go behind the curtain of a vibrant theater and beloved community institution on Staten Island. Starting in the golden age of vaudeville, the film follows the theater’s story of survival through decades of disrepair — until a local dance teacher and her daughters step in to rescue the theater, turning it into the thriving performance venue it is today.
