Coolidge Education


Film is an art form with the power not only to entertain, but also to inform, engage, and build community. The Coolidge is pleased to offer educational programming, using film as a window into other cultures, eras, and experiences.

We offer two kinds of film education programs: multi-week classes focused on a particular subject, and one-night seminars all about select films screening as part of the Big Screen Classics program.
