About Us

The Art Theater builds a creative, compassionate, and critical community through the exhibition of great cinema & media arts.

A non-profit cinema in downtown Champaign, the Art Theater presents hundreds of films, festivals, special series, and public discussions every year. Our curated film program includes new releases and special engagements highlighting marginalized cinema artists. We generate enthusiasm and significance for cinema through our education initiatives at the theater, and regularly partner with community and educational organizations. Through laugher, tears, and critical reflection, the Art Theater builds a model community cinema. We are a member-based organization.

The Art Theater is a program of the 501(c)(3) Art Film Foundation.

We are located at:
126 W. Church St.
Champaign, IL 61820
