The Arthouse Series runs year-round and offers access to independent films to which our community would not otherwise have access. As of March 2020, this series has been running virtually. We feature domestic and international titles, films that debut at premiere film festivals from around the world, and independent films from smaller distributors like Kino Lorber, Magnolia, Neon, and Cohen Media.
