COVID-19 Measures: Virtual Screening Rooms are Open!
Event • Mar 16
In this time of heightened precaution, and following local, state, and national guidelines, the Nickelodeon Theatre and Indie Grits Labs have chosen to close all public programming until further notice. The Nickelodeon Theatre has cancelled all public screenings including special screenings and series. We feel that these measures are in the best interest of our community, keeping our patrons safe.
As a non-profit, this decision was very difficult for us, and we anticipate some difficult financial constraints in the coming months. If you are able, we encourage you to continue renewing memberships and making donations. Your support of the Columbia Film Society is appreciated. We intend to return strong and fully committed to the presentation of films that showcase the diversity, challenges, joy, and aspirations of this community.
Currently the Nickelodeon Theatre is partnering with independent distributors to bring new films for you to enjoy in the privacy of your own home. These Virtual Screening Rooms are easy to access, and we get a cut of the proceeds. Indie Grits Labs is also offering free live stream programming featuring curated film blocks from our festival and special guest filmmakers.
We are monitoring the situation and will continue to respond in the interest of our staff, volunteers, patrons, artists and the community. Please check back on our websites for up-to-date information about closures. We will continue to send our weekly emails and share news via social media. We appreciate your patience and your financial support as we manage these difficult times.
Thank you for your continued support and love of film!
