Science on Screen

We just completed another year as a Legacy Grantee participant in the Coolidge Corner Theatre's Science on Screen®, which was designed in partnership with the Alfred P Sloan Foundation to enhance film and scientific literacy.

Behind the Camera

BEHIND THE CAMERA is a new monthly series featuring first-run films and interviews with accomplished actors and filmmakers. This program affords movie buffs a rare opportunity to see ‘behind the camera’ as we explore the creative process of bringing script to screen.

Arthouse and Indie Films

We are dedicated to not only preserving film culture, but nabling it to grow into something greater than before. You can enjoy new and old films, silent films, cult classics, documentaries, films you have never heard of. We try to find the movies that fall between the cracks, as well as cinema fan favorites from rising stars to Indie legends.

Movies to Dine For

Who doesn't love dinner and a movie?  Movies to Dine For adds a community dinner to a favorite film.  Enjoy culinary bites that explore the world of food, paired with legendary Napa Valley wines to compliment your meal. CinemaBites proceeds benefit the St. Helena Farmers' Market.

Film Class with Ian McIver

Film Class was created to provide a forum for nurturing a deeper understanding of film culture and to keep the tradition of the film-going experience alive here in the Napa Valley. This series was created by Ian McIver, who moderates each class.
