THE ARTHOUSE EXPERIENCE Film Series
Described as limited-release, high-quality titles that have captured the imagination of movie lovers, the Virginia Theatre’s Arthouse Experience Film Series is programmed by special guest curator Sanford Hess.
The movies that Mr. Hess selects—a mix of award-winners, Ebertfest favorites, and recent classics—are presented one Wednesday each month on the Virginia’s 52-foot wide movie screen, with state-of-the-art surround sound.
Each film will be followed by a post-show discussion and in some cases an on-stage talk by directors, producers, and other special guests. Presented by Illinois Public Media, home of WILL-TV, WILL-AM, and WILL-FM.
