About Us

Sudbury Indie Cinema is a not-for-profit co-op. Since 2015, we have been bringing the best in 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 local homegrown filmmakers. Originally, back in summer 2013, we formed as a community response to the growing monopoly of Hollywood blockbusters on a shrinking number of large screens. We have since repurposed part of a closed school into a single screen, state-of-the-art, 180-seat digital cinema. We opened at 162 Mackenzie Feb. 28th, 2019. Access us from the side door at the north side of the building: free parking in the laneway.

Sudbury Indie Cinema Board of Directors 2018

We have a growing membership of 700 Charter members who are cinephiles, appreciate independent cinema, support the co-operative movement, and cherish the growing arts and culture hub downtown.
