More Than Movies

We are an arts advocate in our rural community, with many ongoing initiatives that promote the arts within our rural region. Our goal is to ensure access to film and offer educational opportunities to audiences of all ages.

We also love to bring our community together to celebrate, hosting a number of family-friendly events each year.

Looking to the future, we're growing opportunities for daytime education and programming, focusing on bringing new ideas to our community through technology, and sharing with other communities as well.
