Performance: Film Mass MoCA
Sit back with a scoop of organic popcorn. A live pianist improvises to a Buster Keaton comedy, and the chords careen through a chase. Film in the Northern Berkshires is independent in its thinking and style.
- Images Cinema has been Williamstown’s non-profit movie theatre for more than 100 years, bringing contemporary and international movies and special events from documentaries to anime. Not to mention local beer and organic popcorn.
- Film series pop up across the county. Colleges probe international events. Berkshire International Film Festival spans a week in early summer. And Oldcastle Theatre in Bennington brings classics, sci-fi, and mysteries.
- Local museums screen classics indoors and out. Mass MoCA commissions scores to silent films and hosts documentaries — and screens a classic every summer at the North Adams airport — and the Clark Art Institute shows art-related flicks.
