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.
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.
