Silent and live auctions offer chances to win items dripping with Hollywood glamour and fun including theater tickets, a fabulous trip to a boutique hotel in Lake Tahoe, incredible sports tickets, jewelry and more. Marquee Night will honor longtime Picture House supporter Barbara Bratone with the Harold Lloyd Commitment to Community Award for everything she’s done to keep the cultural landscape of Westchester vibrant and strong, including her previous role as board member and interim executive director of The Picture House.
