Presented by Don Hall. Rochester's East Avenue, between Alexander and Colby Streets, remains one of the best preserved gateway streets entering any city in the United States. Still, about half of the millionaires' homes that lined the avenue have disappeared. Through the use of historic and contemporary photos, Don contrasts vanished East Avenue with the present, covering the adaptive re-use of many fine homes and providing information on seven local architects who designed half of these fabulous houses.

From Here to Eternity screening (2018-Jan-23 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Tuesday, January 23 @ 19:3021:14
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),

+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen From Here to Eternity (Fred Zinnemann, U.S. 1953, 104 min., 35mm) as part of the Academy Awards at 90 series.

The massive James Jones novel is brought forth in a powerful portrait of pre-WWII enlisted men, the women they loved, and the destiny that overtook them in the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. The film is less a study of military life than a male soap opera, with love affairs involving an officer's wife and an enlisted man (Deborah Kerr, Burt Lancaster) and a military outcast and a prostitute (Montgomery Clift, Donna Reed). All the stars (including Frank Sinatra) give Oscar-caliber performances. Nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, the film won eight, including Best Picture and Best Director.
