Village East Cinemas, Formerly the Yiddish Art Theatre via Lost City (http://lostnewyorkcity.blogspot.com)

This month’s screening (tomorrow night) at the Seward Park Library’s L.E.S. Heritage Film Series looks to be another fascinating gem of historical footage:  In the documentary, The Golden Age of Second Avenue (1968, 56 min, 16 mm), director Morton Silverstein documents the Yiddish theater in America from its beginnings to the late Sixties.
