1) Virtual Screening Rooms

In response to being closed, Cinema Capitol has opened "Virtual Screening Rooms" which you can "buy a ticket to" anytime day or night. Each screening room features a different film, with three different films being offered at a time.

Jon Matwijec-Walda Cinema Capitol Manager explains:

“We chose to offer three films at a time in symbolic representation of our three different "screens".

So, whenever you might find yourself in the mood to watch a film, check it out ONLINE.


2) The Artist Support Newsletter

The Artist Support Newsletter is a list for programs that individual artists can apply to for financial help or other assistance. It features descriptions of the programs, along with a link to the funder website. The newsletter will comes weekly on Thursdays
