Bring back our cinema

If you have been hoping Columbia City would once again have a 3-screen cinema showing the latest movies, now is the time to help! SEEDArts and the Columbia City Cinema Advisory Board are continuing our fundraising campaign to bring back the Columbia City Cinema.

Imagine three of your favorite movies playing in one night, family films during the day plus midnight movies. The Cinema will be a program of SEEDArts and will continue to show first and second run movies every night in addition to independent and art house films, film festivals and educational film forums.
