In a nutshell, showing a movie at school can be both legal and illegal, depending on the situation. It's perfectly legal to use movies for educational purposes in a classroom setting under the "fair use" provision of the Copyright Act. However, if the movie is shown for non-educational purposes, like a fundraising event or a reward for students, it might require a public performance license. This is due to copyright laws that protect creative works from being used without permission or compensation. So, always make sure to use movies responsibly in a school setting.

In my latest blog, I explored why TV shows aren't filmed like movies. The main reason is budget - TV shows typically have a smaller budget per episode compared to a movie. This means they often can't afford the same high-quality special effects or grand locations. Also, TV shows need to produce content more quickly to keep up with weekly schedules, which doesn't allow for the lengthy post-production process often used in movies. Finally, they are usually designed for smaller screens, so the visual style and storytelling techniques can be different.
