Program Description
The Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center in Patchogue offers a wide array of opportunities for field trips for many ages. Past trips have included screening of children's films, Foreign Films, and classic theater such as Shakespeare Plays. The Plaza is dedicated to screening films that enrich the community and providing an interactive learning experience for everyone involved in our field trips. For this reason, the trips often include a screening of a film and some sort of activity or guest speaker. The Plaza has hosted trips for ages from elementary school all the way up to high school. Previous trips have included a high school screening of Violeta Went to Heaven, for which guest speaker Isabel Sepulveda (founder of the newspaper Voz Latina and an advocate for the Latino community on the East End) lead a discussion on her personal experience with Chilean Folklorist and singer-composer Violeta Parra and the political-historical climate of Chile. For third and fourth graders The Plaza hosted a screening of the animated film Boxcar Children and had a post-film activity where the kids learned about animation and made their own stop motion films. The Plaza hosts trips for individual classes and various groups from local schools. Most recently the Patchogue Medford High School English Honor Society screened The National Theatre Live’s version of Hamlet starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
