About Us

Sudbury Indie Cinema is a not-for-profit co-op incorporated in 2014. We bring world-class independent cinema to Northern Ontario on a year-round basis. We are mission-driven, rather than profit-driven. We select high-caliber, laudable films that give voice to lesser-heard perspectives on the big screen. We actively support other arts organizations, grassroots not-for-profits and support local homegrown filmmakers. Originally, we formed as a community response to the growing monopoly of Hollywood blockbusters on a shrinking number of large screens, back in summer 2013. We have since secured a lease to convert and repurpose part of a closed school into a single screen, state-of-the-art, digital cinema. We anticipate opening in late 2018 at our own location, but in the meantime, we have been programming films from other downtown Sudbury screening venues.

The People Behind Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op

We have a growing membership of over 500 Charter members who are cinephiles, appreciate independent cinema, support the co-operative movement, and cherish the growing arts and culture hub downtown.
