Looking for something fun for the kids to do when Pelham schools are out on December 13th? Join us for the Far, Far Away Show!

 

In preparation for the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 14th, The Picture House Regional Film Center is hosting a Star Wars-themed day camp for students in grades K-2 and 3-5. Wear those costumes or Star Wars t-shirts and be a guest on the Far, Far Away Show – our kid-friendly version of a late night variety show. Not that into Star Wars? Be the host, a guest performer, or help out on the production team and make sure we’re getting the best shots on film. There’s a role for everyone! A final video of the show will be made available a few weeks after the conclusion of the camp. The video will also be included in our red carpet Spring Student Showcase.

Camp begins at 9:00am, Wednesday, December 13th, in the lobby of The Picture House at 175 Wolfs Lane and continues until 12:00pm. If your child would like to stay longer, pack a lunch, we’ll eat together, and watch Coco in the Main Hall until 2:30pm.

 

Cost: $60.00 – Half Day

$90.00 – Extended Day until 2:30pm
