Films for Children

Families are invited to enjoy a wide range of innovative film programming—including classics, recently produced shorts, and foreign features.  Selected to appeal to both youth and adult audiences, age recommendations assist parents in selecting the most emotionally and intellectually stimulating films for their children. Feature films are in English, unless otherwise noted.

All film programs are shown in the East Building Auditorium, which seats 450 people. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Groups are welcome. Food and drink are not permitted. Programs are free.  No advance registration required.
