Day Trips to the Oriental Theatre
UPDATE: Taking the lead from city and state health authorities, as well as local school districts, we are cancelling our spring semester Education Screenings. We regret not being able to offer this opportunity to you and your students, but securing our community's health is paramount at this time.
We are currently exploring ways to give access to films and curriculum to educators through online means and will be in touch if and when we have a concrete plan for this form of delivery in the near future should an opportunity arise.
Please stay tuned to our Educator Newsletter for announcements of opening registration for our Fall 2020 Education Screenings in the coming months.
Please don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com with any questions!
Milwaukee Film Education Team
About our Education Screenings:
Through 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 have been limited to festival season, but with Milwaukee Film operating the Oriental Theatre year-round, we have expanded this program to serve students throughout the academic year.
