Day Trips to the Oriental Theatre
UPDATE: Taking the lead from city and state health authorities, as well as local school districts, we are still waiting to see what or if screening can occur for Fall 2020. Securing our community's health is paramount at this time - stay tuned for updates.
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 don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!

Stay tuned for updates regarding the Fall Season!
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.
