A Message from The Cinema Center: Please help us in this time! Cinema Center has been in Fort Wayne since the 70's and needs support during this time. We are continuing our mission on during this shutdown and are committed to finding ways to support our people. We have films available to rent through our website that you can't see through any other streaming platforms. We are also curating a selection of shorts that are free to watch online. These have all been chosen by Cinema Center employees; they find something that inspires or resonates with them and they share it with our audience at Basically, we are continuing to provide reasons for people to visit us every day even if it is visiting us virtually at rather than in the theater. Cinema Center, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arthouse movie theater in Fort Wayne. We provide unique opportunities to explore our world through the art of film. We strive to engage our community with programming that stimulates, expands thought, inspires the spirit, promotes discussion and fosters empathy through artistic and cultural experiences.
