February 25 – An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris

Afternoon @ the Movies

Afternoon @ the Movies - March 23, 2017

On March 23, 2017 Afternoon @ the Movies will present Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream. Since 1925 the Streit's matzo factory has sat in a lowslung tenement building on Manhattan's Lower East Side. While other matzo companies have modernized, Streit's remained a piece of living history, churning out 40 percent of the nation's unleavened bread on pre-War machinery as old as the factory itself. Filmmaker Michael Levine captures the Streit's saga and how it echoes the American Dream.
