June 21 - July 10
Rochester, N.Y., June 23, 2022—The George Eastman Museum has announced that its popular Eastman Entertains: At the Movies, will return in 2022 and be on view from Tuesday, June 21, through Sunday, July 10. For three weeks only, a spectacular array of creatively styled table settings and floral arrangements inspired by popular motion pictures—including A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Cats, Charlotte’s Web, Cruella, and Toy Story—will be displayed in the Multipurpose Hall and select areas of the historic mansion.
Eastman Entertains is back for its sixth year, paying homage to George Eastman’s own entertaining of friends, family, and business colleagues at his grand East Avenue residence. As Rochester’s leading citizen, Eastman was accustomed to hosting guests, and he ensured that each luncheon, dinner party, and event was a memorable experience for them. This display continues to honor the tradition of entertaining at the mansion that Eastman cherished.
There will be more than a dozen creative tablescapes and arrangements on display throughout the National Historic Landmark mansion that were designed by community members and businesses.
Organized by the Eastman Museum Landscape Committee, Eastman Entertains is generously supported by Daryl Dear Cubitt and sponsored by Wegmans.
Admission is free to members and included with general museum admission. Admission is always free for EBT/SNAP cardholders, active military, and their families. Advanced tickets are encouraged for admission to the museum and can be reserved at eastman.org/tickets.
