World Stage on Screen and Senior Afternoon Cinema to Benefit from Sponsorship Support
Pleasantville, NY – May 16, 2018 – The Knolls, a continuing care retirement community located in Valhalla, is the 2018-19 sponsor of Arts in the Afternoon at the Jacob Burns Film Center. This ongoing program includes two popular series: World Stage on Screen and Senior Afternoon Cinema.

World Stage on Screen brings the best of international theater and dance to the screen and includes performances from National Theatre Live and the Royal Opera House in London. Senior Afternoon Cinema is a series of outstanding older films programmed to appeal to senior moviegoers. Both programs run year-round.

“We are delighted to sponsor these programs at the Jacob Burns Film Center, which offers the community easy access to world class performances,” said Beth Goldstein, CEO of Bethel Homes and Services. “We hope that this sponsorship will enable seniors, and the community at large, to continue enjoying the wonderful cultural offerings of the Jacob Burns Film Center, and that more seniors will benefit from learning about The Knolls, Bethel’s Continuing Care Retirement Community, as well as its other community and residential programs,” Goldstein added.
