Film Appreciation Seminars offer a fun and eye-opening approach to further understanding cinema’s most popular films. These seminars take place at the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas and one registration includes a preliminary in-depth lecture before the film, a ticket to the film itself, and a talkback after the film.
The Wizard of Oz is an all-time movie classic enjoyed by children and adults alike for more than 80 years. Why has it remained so popular over the years? In this Film Appreciation Seminar, we will take a look at the making of The Wizard of Oz, its enduring popularity, and how it exemplifies the best of Hollywood in its Golden Age. Come join us as we journey over the rainbow for a fun and enlightening examination of this all-time American classic.
Tim Molchany is a Professor of Communication and Film at Northampton Community College, advisor of the NCC Film Club, and a long time member of the Cinema Advisory Committee at ArtsQuest. His love of movies and film began as a young man and continues to this day. In the late 1980s and early 1990s – prior to his teaching career – he worked as the Clubhouse Manager for the New York Yankees AA affiliate that at the time was based in Albany, NY where he attended The University at Albany. Recently he has helped coordinate and support film screenings sponsored by Northampton Community College and shown at The Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas. He loves films from Hollywood’s Golden Age and baseball and The Natural is among his favorite baseball films. “The Natural is a throwback to an earlier era of filmmaking that has the look and feel of the classic films produced in the golden age of Hollywood. It’s a must watch for all baseball fans”.
