Virginia Peninsula Jewish Film Festival on Merchants Square concludes in March at CW’s Kimball Theatre
In March and April, Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre hosts two film festivals – the Virginia Peninsula Jewish Film Festival on Merchants Square and the International Mercury EXPO Film Festival.
The Virginia Peninsula Jewish Film Festival concludes with “Strangers.”
Movie admission is $7 for adults and $6 for seniors, students and children. Movie vouchers are not valid for festival screenings.
The College of William and Mary presents the International Mercury EXPO Film Festival. The festival includes a collection of movies highlighting the impact and presence of mercury on a global scale. From fish markets to coal mining, mercury is everywhere: a hazard transcending traditional boundaries, seeping into our everyday lives.
Friday, April 23
Saturday, April 24
Sunday, April 25
All screenings are free and open to the public but tickets are required.
Sponsored by the Wendy and Emery Reves Center for International Studies, the series is presented in conjunction with the 2010 International Mercury EXPO at the College of William and Mary April 22-25.
Located in Williamsburg’s Merchants Square, the beautifully restored Kimball Theatre presents films, live performances, musical concerts and special programs. Creative programming alliances with the College of William and Mary, community organizations and Colonial Williamsburg link the past with the present. The 410-seat theater also houses a 35-seat screening room which enables the theater to offer films to the community seven days a week, even when live performances are staged in the main theater.
