The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Classic Film Series on FRIDAY nights at 7 PM, focusing on the themes of "WWI and Its Legacy in Film" and "Justice in Film." Highlights include All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) and Grand Illusion (1937), with opening remarks for both films by Kati Marton and New Yorker film critic David Denby; In the Heat of the Night (1967), with opening remarks by actress Lee Grant and acclaimed producer Susan Lacy; To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), with opening remarks by Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., and Khalil Gibran Muhammad; and Advise & Consent (1962), introduced by Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, Samuel Alito and Philip Bobbitt.

Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
