As emcee of the Family Classics Picture Show, David Moreland brings his own family’s love of cinema along with his experience in the movie business. Before moving to Ithaca in 2002, Moreland worked as a character actor in Hollywood and appeared in dozens of television shows and the films Legally Blonde, Donnie Darko, One Hour Photo, and City of Angels. “I don’t think classic films are inherently better than the best of current Hollywood releases, but today’s kids see the current releases over and over, and if we don’t make a special time for the classics, young people will never see them. That’s what the Family Classics Picture Show is all about,” says Moreland. “I’ve shown many of the films in this year’s line-up to my daughters. They’ve asked to see them again and again, and have even chosen them as their birthday party movie, so their friends could see them too.”
The Family Classics Picture Show at Cinemapolis is presented by Wells Fargo Advisors, While staff and committee members have vetted the films in the Family Classics Picture Show, only parents can decide which films are the right fit for their family. Cinemapolis encourages parents to read about each film at CommonSenseMedia.org before deciding to attend.
