Projection Booth kicked off the New Year with a vast screening series. Covering a great deal of the first half of the 20th Century, their screening series Film Changes the World looks at the social history of the art form.

Starting January 4 and running until the end of the month, the series screens films such as A Star is Born (the film crystallized the idea of the Hollywood style stardom), White Zombie (the beginning of the on-screen zombie), Scarlet Street (Euro classicism in American noir), war-time propaganda, 50s B-movies and drive-in classics, and much more.

Passes for the full month can be purchased for $50 or $8 for individual screenings.
