If this winter weather has you down, enjoy getting out of the house by checking out some films being shown at the Westchester County’s The Picture House film center in Pelham.

The Picture House in Pelham has been in existence since 1921. After possibly being condemned, citizens of the local area put together a nonprofit organization to save the theatre for the community. The Picture House Regional Film Center now provides entertainment for diverse audiences by showing classic films, popular movies, and special events.

From March 6th through the 12th The Picture House will be showing the films "The Human Capital"and "The Imitation Game".
