Scarecrow Video and film critic Robert Horton present Scarecrow Academy: '1959: The Greatest Year in Film History'

Local 501(c)(3) Scarecrow Video, the largest private video library in the world, is partnering with Seattle Weekly film critic Robert Horton to present '1959: The Greatest Year in Film History,' a year-long series of film screenings and discussions celebrating one of the most important years in cinema.

1959 marked a high point of Hollywood studio filmmaking, the rise of new independent cinema, the great flowering of international movies, and the beginning of the French New Wave. The year represents the bridge between cinematic mastery bred in the silent era and the stirring tumult that would arrive in the 1960s.

Join us on 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 1pm in the Scarecrow Screening Room for the best films from the year including North by Northwest, Some Like It Hot, Hiroshima Mon Amour, and A Bucket of Blood.

Each program will include an introduction, screening, and post-film discussion. These events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged at blog.scarecrow.com/scarecrowacademy

WHAT: Scarecrow Academy - 1959: The Greatest Year in Film History

WHEN: 2nd and 4th Saturdays, January 26th Through May 11th at 1pm

RSVP at blog.scarecrow.com/scarecrowacademy

WHERE: The Screening Room at Scarecrow Video, 5030 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105

ABOUT SCARECROW VIDEO
Storytelling is at the heart of film's ability to inspire empathy. Over a hundred years ago, we began using film to tell our cultural stories. Scarecrow Video is devoted to gathering and sharing as many of these cinematic stories as possible. With its vast collection of 132,000 titles, Scarecrow is one of the most important video libraries in the world. Scarecrow Video became a non-profit in 2014 to continue the founding vision of uniting people through film, and just celebrated its 30th anniversary as an institution and landmark. But, much like public radio and television, Scarecrow Video will not be able to continue without the support of its community. Find out how you can help.

Nearly every night Scarecrow offers free films, lectures, and unique programming in The Screening Room. The space is also available to non-profits and community groups, all in an effort to build communities around our shared love of film. Providing a physical space for all to convene around film arts and culture is just one way that Scarecrow gives back to the community. Other free programs in which Scarecrow fosters community through film include:

Children's Hour - Using short videos from the Scarecrow archive, storybooks curated by the Seattle Public Library, and interactive activities centered on a theme, Children's Hour offers auditory, visual, and tactile learning in a fun environment - all at no cost to families.

Silver Screeners - Scarecrow partners with Seattle senior and community centers to deliver film screenings and discussions for older adults who might otherwise be unable to access films from the collection.

Movies in the Park - In partnership with Magnuson Park Community Center, City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and Seattle Parks and Recreation, Scarecrow hosted free, family-friendly movie nights. Hundreds of attendees explored other cultures through four unique, family-friendly films and children's activities without needing to leave Seattle.
