Day Trips to
the Oriental Theatre
In Milwaukee Film's Education Screenings program, local students take a day trip to the Oriental Theatre. The students experience a historic cinema, view a high-quality film, and join other students from the community to engage in thought-provoking, curriculum-based activities and discussions. We also provide participating teachers with curriculum packets that indicate the Common Core State Standards our screenings and activities meet.
Previous screenings have included the documentaries T-Rex, The Blood is at the Doorstep, and Supergirl, and, on occasion, we've been able to bring in a film professional or guest to supplement the screening and subsequent discussion.
In the past, our Education Screenings program has been limited to festival season, but beginning with the 2018–2019 academic year, Milwaukee Film will operate the Oriental Theatre year-round, allowing us to expand our Education Screenings program to serve even more students in a given year.
Feel free to email our Youth Education Coordinator, Hope Owens-Wilson, with any questions or sign up for our Educator Newsletter to receive program updates in your inbox.
All showtimes for the 2018 festival are currently spoken for, but let us know you're interested in our year-round Education Screenings set to begin after this year's festival!
