Community Cinema

Illinois Public Media has joined with the Independent Television Service (ITVS) to bring you Community Cinema, a series of screenings of independent documentaries shown at the Spurlock Museum. Each hour-long film is viewed and then discussed with the audience and a community panel of people with knowledge of the topic locally. These screenings are free and open to the public.
