Notes from the IFS Desk


The IFS would like to thank you for your support during this challenging time. The IFS is grateful to the independent movie distributors who are providing us and other theaters with the opportunity to continue offering arthouse curated experiences to our devoted audiences, even as Meunzinger remains temporarily closed.

For almost 80 years, the IFS has been dedicated to supporting the art and film culture of both unique and great cinema. When you purchase a ticket to a virtual screening via our website you get to do two things at once: you get to watch a great indie title and you also get to help out the IFS.

As we adapt to new changes let us continue to appreciate what we all have to offer each during these exceptional times. The show must go on!
