Cinema Center


Fort Wayne Cinema Center, Inc. is a nonprofit organization serving northeast Indiana.

Mission: Cinema Center, Fort Wayne’s center for film, provides unique opportunities to explore our world through the art of film.

Vision: Cinema Center is the premier cultural center for the presentation of independent, foreign and documentary films in Northeast Indiana.  Through special programming, outreach and education programs, Cinema Center provides a hub for filmmakers and film lovers to share and discuss the craft.  We strive to engage our community with programming that stimulates, expands thought, inspires the spirit, promotes discussion and fosters empathy through artistic and cultural experiences.

We pursue this mission at our location downtown at 437 E. Berry St. in the Hall Community Arts Center, which is part of the arts campus in downtown Fort Wayne.
