Marquee Night: A Picture House Tradition

Despite the nor’easter that blew into Westchester on Friday, March 2nd, nearly 300 guests braved the weather to attend MarqueeNight- The Picture House Regional Film Center’s (TPH) winter party at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. This year, the popular Academy Awards pre-party — co-chaired by Pelham resident Louise Middleton and New Rochelle resident and Picture House Board member Melina Vourlekis — focused on Italian Oscar winners including the films, directors, producers, and actors who have contributed to cinema through the years.

Guests kicked-off the night with cocktails overlooking the Long Island Sound, and a silent auction, followed by dinner, a rousing live auction which included two tickets to Springsteen on Broadway and a coveted dinner for two at Rao’s and paddle raise. Long-time Picture House supporter John Calvelli was honored with the Harold Lloyd Commitment to Community Award and filmmaker and author Clara Bingham was recognized with the Harold Lloyd Industry Distinction Award for her film work.

Notable guests at Marquee Night included United States Congressman Eliot Engel, State Senator Jeff Klein, and County Executive George Latimer.
