Westchester’s Silver Screen (PLV)
Curious about the history of film in Westchester? Drop by Professor Rebecca Martin’s History of Film course on April 29 for a documentary screening of "The Thanhouser Studio and the Birth of American Cinema" and meet the film's producer Ned Thanhouser.
Professor of English Rebecca Martin, PhD, and her History of Film course invite the Pace Community to join them for a special evening with Ned Thanhouser, president of Thanhouser Company Film Preservation, Inc., filmmaker, and grandson of two turn-of-the-20th-century Broadway actors who started Thanhouser Studios in 1910 in Westchester. Thanhouser will speak to the class and guests on Wednesday, April 29, at 6:10 p.m. in Lienhard Hall, L14.
Thanhouser has produced a documentary, The Thanhouser Studio and the Birth of American Cinema, about his grandparent’s studio and has traveled the world to gather missing pieces of the studio’s history and the hundreds of films that were produced there. He visits Martin’s class from the West Coast and will show his documentary and speak to the class and guests about his work, the little-known early history of filmmaking in Westchester, and the conditions of production in the early days of film.
