Remake - Locally Designed Movie Posters Based on the Films of Bill Murray

May 14th




It's back and better than ever! It's time for Remake, Cinema Center's annual sale and auction of locally designed movie posters. This year, all the posters are inspired by the long filmography of sure-to-be-sainted Bill Murray!

Each artist was asked to recreate a movie poster based on their favorite Bill Murray movie. The response has been great with local artists tackling Caddyshack, Groudhog Day, Rushmore, Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Ghostbusters, and many, many more.

Full-sized, 27X40 framed and signed posters will be adorning our Spectator Lounge walls ready for your silent auction bids. This year we will have smaller prints of each poster for sale.

Bravas will be on site, serving some of the best food Ft. Wayne has to offer. Cinema Center will have beer and wine inside.

After the event, we will be screening Bill Murray's take on Hunter S. Thompson in Where the Buffalo Roam.

Get into this event for only $5!

All sales benefit Cinema Center's operations and programming!

Hobnobben Film Festival - June 16-19


Hobnobben Film Festival is where film lovers rub elbows with film makers, in downtown Ft. Wayne, Indiana. This will be the Summit City's first multi-day, multi-venue film festival, presented by Cinema Center, a nonprofit film organization with 40 years of experience in the community. This year's film festival will take place June 16th-June19th, 2016. Ft. Wayne is a cool, little city with a great art scene, a growing downtown busting at the seams with restaurants and bars, and because of Cinema Center, some of the most film-loving folks you will meet in the Midwest. Because Ft. Wayne is where electronics pioneer Philo Farnsworth perfected the invention of the modern television, we have decided to honor him at Hobnobben with Philo Fest, a portion of Hobnobben that focuses exclusively on episodic and serialized television pilots. But, we are also screening shorts and features from local, regional, national and international filmmakers, as well! This is our first year, but we are sure this film festival is taking Cinema Center, and all of northeast Indiana, down a great, cinematic road for years to come. The festival plaza is all within walking distance from downtown eateries, recreation, bars and all festival-related parties. The four Ft. Wayne venues hosting the Hobnobben Film Festival are Cinema CenterArts United Center and Arts United ArtsLab Theater and University of Saint Francis Performing Arts Center .


Film selection will be announced soon!





NSFW is the stuff you weren’t supposed to watch as a kid. It’s the stuff you heard someone describe and it sounded so absurd it couldn’t possibly be real. It’s the place where you can see Rowdy Roddy Piper one night and Jack Nicholson the next. Where people in the high-brow got their start in the low-brow. It’s Black & White, Smell-o-Vision, Red, Green, or Purple Tinted, and Technicolor. From Italy, Korea, the UK, North America, Japan. Dubbed, Subtitled, or Barely Audible. This is the Summit City’s showcase of thrillers, horror-shows, comedies, sci-fi head trips, the overshadowed flicks from burgeoning film titans, and the triumphs of the auteurs of sleaze. Welcome to, “Not Safe Fort Wayne”, bringing new and old cult classics to the three rivers!

The best part? This screening is absolutely FREE to all members who attend! You don’t need to do anything additional to be part of the Film Club, just be a current member. Preceding each Film Club showing will be a Members Only Mixer in the Spectator Lounge, where our great community of cinephiles can come together, have a drink from Cinema Center’s excellent selection of beer and wine and discuss all things movies with one another, as well as Cinema Center’s fun and knowledgeable staff.


Have a friend who isn't a Member yet? Bring them along and they can enjoy the screening at Member pricing! 



Subtitled Sundays


In an effort to make our programming accessible to all audiences, Cinema Center is excited and proud to launch Subtitled Sundays! On the third Sunday of every month, Cinema Center will screen one of our regularly scheduled, full-run films with the captioning enabled. Not only will this benefit the deaf and hard of hearing, but it will help anyone who sometimes has a little trouble discerning dialogue when multiple characters speak, or who miss what is said in very quiet moments.

Past and Annual Events
Each year, more than 50 local artists donate one-of-a-kind hanging art pieces to this fun, festive silent auction. A perennial favorite with the art crowd and holiday shoppers alike. 

Braineaters’ Ball
A part of Downtown Fright Night, the Braineater’s Ball is a spookifying mix of movies, music, dancing, macabre art, a costume contest, and yummy food for the undead. Admission is free.

Oscar Party
Our annual salute to the Oscars! This popular party features a silent auction, live music, Oscar balloting, an Oscar trivia contest with prizes, great food and libations, and the screening of an Oscar-nominated film.

Spinal Tap Party
Nigel Tufnel Day on 11.11.11 was the occasion for this rockin’, one-time-only party. Cinema Center turned it up to 11 with beer, wine and tiny bread, as Christopher Guest fans turned out for a screening of the hilarious cult classic “This Is Spinal Tap.”
