The CineMondays Film Series Returns With Seven Screenings This Spring

The Gershman Y’s Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival presents its popular spring film series starting on Monday, March 28.

The Gershman Y is turning Mondays into movie days. This month, the organization’s Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival brings back its popular spring series, CineMondays.

At 7:30 p.m. on six upcoming Monday nights (March 28; April 4, 11 & 18; and May 2 & 9), viewers can sit back and enjoy a range of interesting movies, several of which are showing in Philadelphia for the very first time.

The opening night film, In Search of Israeli Cuisine, chronicles celebrate Philly chef Michael Solomonov’s journey to discover the roots of Israeli cooking.

This special screening will include a post-film discussion with Chef Solomonov and the film’s director. Plus, guests who bring or purchase a copy of Solomonov’s new cookbook Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking can stay after the film to have books signed.

In the weeks that follow, CineMondays will feature films ranging from a documentary about the American educational system to a drama about a bridegroom possessed by a demon on his wedding night.

Most screenings take place at The Gershman Y, but a handful of nights take place at venues including International House Philadelphia and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

Tickets for opening night are $15 each, while the remaining five films cost just $13 per person.
