50/50 Series

The Film Center celebrates our 50th anniversary with 50/50, a year-long series presenting a film from each year we’ve been open, Monday nights at 6:00PM. From films that hold significance to the Film Center’s history, to films that were cultural touch points in a particular year, from art house favorites to locally connected stories, 50/50 invites audiences to steep themselves in a history of cinema.

50/50 Rewind: For the final week of 2022, we're rewinding and presenting encore screenings for eight of our most popular titles in the 50/50 series.
