The Silver Screens of Suffolk
An Exhibit Celebrating the History of Film: 1900s - 1960s

The magic of cinema has captivated America for over 100 years. Though the origins of early cinema are complex, Suffolk County played a surprising role in the early stages of the silent film industry! Our Silver Screens of Suffolk exhibit celebrates the history of film, illustrating its early connections to Suffolk County and our area’s charming local theaters, while also outlining cinema history through a showcase of one of the finest private collections of movie posters, programs, heralds, and theater window cards. From silent films to Hollywood legends, sci-fi to Disney animations, The Silver Screens of Suffolk offers a fun-filled adventure for all ages!

In our Grand Staas Gallery through April 2019.
Gallery Hours: Weds. - Sat., 10:00 am - 4:30 pm.
