On Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m., Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre will be hosting a premiere screening of “Impresarios and Visionaries,” a new documentary film that explores the positive influence of the arts in our community by focusing on the unique contributions of Vic Skolnick, Cinema Arts Centre co-founder, and Michael Rothbard, co-founder of Inter-Media Arts Center. Skolnick and Rothbard were pioneers in bringing the wide range of cultural experiences to suburban audiences.
Directed by local Emmy nominated filmmaker Steven Taub, the documentary features interviews with IMAC Co-Founder Kathie Bodily, CAC Co-Founder Charlotte Sky, filmmaker/actor Ed Burns, musician David Bromberg, social activist/poet Sandy Chapin, NPR radio station’s WFUV John Platt, CEO of Long Island Cares Paule Pachter and many others. The film is accompanied by a musical soundtrack featuring accomplished local musicians.
The event is open to the public, who are required to pay a $20 entry fee. Cinema Arts Centre members will only have to pay a $15 entry fee. Following the film’s screening, there will be a discussion on it, as well as a reception. To learn more about the Cinema Arts Centre, people can go to its website at www.cinemaartscentre.org.
