Children's Film Program

Families are invited to enjoy a wide range of innovative film programming—including classics, recently produced shorts, and foreign features.  Selected to appeal to both youth and adult audiences, age recommendations assist parents in selecting the most emotionally and intellectually stimulating films for their children. Feature films are in English, unless otherwise noted.

Due to the East Building renovation, all children’s films in the summer of 2014 will be shown in the West Building Lecture Hall, which seats 150 people. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Groups are welcome. Food and drink are not permitted. Programs are free. No advance registration is required.

All film programs held June through August 2014 celebrate the exhibition Degas/Cassatt.  A free Family Guide, designed to explore the exhibition, will be available at each screening.
