Bill Ayres: Long Island’s ‘Cinema Paradiso’

March 16, 2012 4:00 AM video

The Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, Long Island is the premiere place to see indie films, foreign films and classics that you just can’t find anymore. I know the people that founded it in 1973 and continue to run the place. People come from all over Long Island to see these movies. It has three theaters in this old school building that’s been completely renovated. They also have live music, silent films and talkbacks with directors and actors.
