Eastman Entertains: At the Movies

Wednesday, June 9–Sunday, June 27, 2021, George Eastman Museum

Eastman Entertains: At the Movies, an array of beautiful table settings, creatively themed tabletops, and lush floral arrangements, returns to the George Eastman Museum. Now in its fifth year, the display is made up of over a dozen tablescapes created by community members and businesses and inspired by popular motion pictures. The tablescapes are on view in the Multipurpose Hall and select areas of the historic mansion.

Some of the movies that inspired this year's tablescapes are Beauty and the Beast, Big Night, Julie and Julia, The Lone Ranger, The Queen, Sunset Blvd., and The Wizard of Oz.

Organized by the Eastman Museum Landscape Committee. Supported by Daryl Dear Cubitt.


Nonmembers are required to purchase admission tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased online at any point prior to visiting. 

Museum members and other guests receiving free admission do not need to purchase tickets in advance—just show your member card, military ID, or SNAP/EBT card at the Lipson Welcome Center when you arrive.
