We love updating our street side movie poster frames. Each week, we think about where we’ll highlight our new opening films and showcase what’s coming soon. After we closed in early March, our frames were empty and we were missing movie posters. After a while, we decided to put them to good use, collaborating with local artists to showcase their work, spread some joy, and have some fun.

THOUGHTS ON A CINEMA

Fall 2020

Six word smiths – some poets, some film critics, some spoken word masters contributed their thoughts on a cinema for our Fall 2020 poster art series. They help us celebrate the magic of cinema, its power and its promise.

 

At a/perture cinema, we love updating our street side movie poster frames. Each week, we think about where we’ll highlight our new opening films and showcase what’s coming soon. After we closed in early March, our frames were empty and we were missing our posters. After a while, we decided to put them to good use, collaborating with local artists to showcase their work, spread some joy, and have some fun.

Mask the City Series

While we couldn’t host our usual summer movie poster sale, we decided to dig through our vault of past movie posters for this fun collaboration with Mask the City. This series was recently featured in Americans for the Arts Community + Arts Mosaic.

 

City of Arts & Innovation Series

To kick off our poster art series, we worked with SECCA and some of our favorite Winston-Salem artists to celebrate the City of Arts & Innovation!
