Dedicated to engaging and educating the community through high-quality films, Park Circle Films has grown from a shoestring film club to a full-fledged society of silver-screen aficionados, complete with new high-definition projecting capabilities. The nonprofit, all-volunteer organization shows local, national, and international celluloid reels from directors who produce the most artistic and thought-provoking indie features, documentaries, and shorts. Upcoming flicks include Small Town Murder Songs, an engrossing murder mystery, and Do No Harm, a documentary detailing two whistleblowers’ struggle to expose a small town hospital’s unsavory practices. Two drinks (up to $2 each) and free popcorn stave off the need to gnaw on theater seats during the film.
