 The JBFC Theater houses three screens and is open to the public 365 days a year. Exhibitions include first-run independent features, previews, classic films, and documentaries from around the world. Each month, we present two to four curated series including annual and monthly programs, as well as special one-time events and retrospectives on important film artists. More than 150 directors, actors, authors, scholars, and other remarkable guests come to speak with our audience each year.

The JBFC presents a number of popular annual and monthly series including “Global Watch,” a documentary series dealing with human rights and social justice; “German Cinema;” “The Wide World of Animation,” exploring the vitality of the medium from classic cartoons to the avant garde; “Dance on Camera;” “Classic Italian Cinema;” “FrameWorks,” dedicated to the visual arts; “Westchester Jewish Film Festival;” “Jazz Sessions;” and “Rarely Seen Cinema” curated by filmmaker and JBFC Board member, Jonathan Demme.
