The Village Theater Company was formed by a board of volunteers to setup a nonprofit to bring a multi-screen movie theater to Sewickley to enhance the cultural and educational experiences in the community.
Through partnerships with local school districts, Laughlin Center, YMCA, Robert Morris University, Pittsburgh Filmmakers, Sweetwater Center for the Arts and Sewickley Library there can be educational programs and community gatherings at the proposed movie house.
Local Garden clubs can gather together to host speakers and view video travel logs. Afterschool and summer programs can use the space to supplement their activities. Book clubs can read books and meet at the theater for a movie and book discussion. Foreign language clubs can show movies with their preferred languages.
Cult and Classic Movies can bind people by interest and crossover any age-group boundaries. There can be streaming of live events, like the recent Oscar 2013: Academy Awards.
And film techniques and myths can be brought to light to enable the creation of films. Click the video above or go to YouTube to check out this new short film created by a talented Quaker Valley sophomore student, Peter Heres. It tells the story better than words.
