Film

We are expanding our offerings for film! Films on artists, art forms, documentaries, independent and international films 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.

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.
