Film

The Center presents films on artists, art forms, documentaries, independent and international films that can be hard to see locally and having the opportunity to see them on the big screen as a community is another way we come together through the arts. Films are often presented in coordination with The Center’s BIG IDEA projects as a way to enhance and deepen understanding of the BIG IDEA through the medium of film.

There are many more films coming up from The Center and our partner Magic Lantern Cinemas as a part of our special Thursday evening film series.
