USN Centennial & Movie Night Films

    • This is That School

    • USN Movie Night - Alumni Promo Video


During our Centennial celebration in 2014-2015, USN released two documentary films to mark 100 years of teaching and learning on Edgehill. Together, this pairing of films helps describe where we've been, where we are, and where we're going. "A Century of Learning" is the work of the Jackson Foundation. "This Is That School" is directed by our own Technical Theatre Director, Jim Manning.

USN's Centennial celebrations also included a historic "USN Movie Night at the Belcourt", featuring 3 hours of alumni films, followed by a historic screening of "Masque", the Peabody Cinema Club's silent film from 1928 that was digitally remastered specifically for this Belcourt screening. Films were programmed by a special Movie Night committee and "Masque" was remastered and soundtracked by Steve Smail, USN's HS Filmmaking teacher. Special thanks to Alumni William Tyler '98 for providing music for "Masque" and Sam Smith '99 for custom artwork and poster design.
