GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Hyde Collection’s accumulation of art has taken on a rotation of many forms, from classical painting to screenprinting, student works and more. Soon, a new experience will come to the museum taking on another type of canvas – the big screen.

Starting this Saturday, Oct. 8, the Hyde will flip the projector on for On Screen @ The Hyde, a new film series highlighting great British theatre, as well as art from around the world. The program includes National Theatre Live – a program from the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain to broadcast performances worldwide. It also incorporates Great Art on Screen, a program including documentaries and experiences featuring art, history, and biographies from across the world of art.

“We are honored to bring National Theatre Live and Great Art on Screen to our members, community, and region,” said Hyde Collection CEO Norman E. Dascher, Jr. “We are excited to offer this new experience in our beautiful state-of-the-art high-definition 144-seat Helen Froehlich Auditorium. Offering exceptional journeys through art and culture is central to our mission as a world-class art museum.”
