West Orange Classic Film Festival

495 Prospect Avenue
West Orange, NJ 07052

Held over eight Sundays throughout January and February in the town where Thomas Edison invented movies, the West Orange Classic Film Festival returns for its fifteenth season, once again giving lovers of cinema a chance to experience their favorite films as they were meant to be seen— on the big screen. This year’s festival looks back at highlights of their first decade and a half, with each film followed by a discussion led by a local film scholar/critic. Three of the feature length films to be presented won the Academy Award for Best Picture for the year of their release, and were selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant".
