Stephanie Gozali, Development Officer

"This is exactly the kind of mind-bending film that I'll be watching," Gozali says. "Especially when we're all cooped up inside social distancing at home, and dreaming of the days when we can all go back to our regular lives again."

Frances Ha

Christian Kincaid, Floor Staff Supervisor

"You really feel the isolation (Gerwig's character) feels from losing her friend," Kincaid says. "And that's why I think it's the perfect movie to watch right now, in this weird social distancing experiment we're all in."

Sullivan's Travels

Beth Gilligan, Director of Development & Marketing

Along with being extremely funny, Gilligan says, "it really speaks to the power cinema has to uplift us and to bring us together during challenging and uncertain times."

Mark Anastasio, Program Manager & Director of Special Programming

"I know that watching it at home is not the same as seeing it on the big screen," Anastasio says. "But while we're all feeling a little bit cooped up, the film literally does launch you into outer space!"
