Folktellers/Emagine Theaters Storytelling for Literacy Red Carpet Event

May 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Our Storytelling for Literacy Program encourages both reading and visual literacy by providing free books to students and teachers in every program kit, while allowing them to use these stories to create their own movie trailers.

The program will be piloted in Michigan Spring 2023 with plans to expand to other Emagine locations across the Midwest. The program is free for participating schools, with funding coming from the donations of corporate sponsors.

Demonstrating a new approach toward family entertainment, the partnership represents a new distribution model for the film and television industry to screen television shows and motion pictures theatrically, in addition to streaming.

“Kids will get to read the wonderful stories and watch classic, family-friendly films in our theatres,” says Paul Glantz, founder and chairman of Emagine. “Then, they get to create their own book-inspired videos to be screened at an award ceremony at Emagine. It’s a real innovative way to engage with children and families promoting growth and learning, which is vitally important to us at Emagine.”
