Rob King, Lenfest Kids Programmer and Professor of Film
Lauren Weigel, Director, Lenfest Center for the Arts


Welcome back to a new season of Lenfest Kids. The last few months have seen New York City slowly reopening. We're celebrating by dedicating this season to films set in this great city. We’ll be sharing family films that allow us to learn about the history and the culture of New York. Watch the videos included in the pages below to learn more from Film Professor, Rob King as he and his children share tidbits about films they love. 

The Greatest Showman

Our first film this month is The Greatest Showman (2017), a musical retelling of the life of P. T. Barnum, who opened Barnum’s American Museum in 1841, in what is now the Financial District.
