Established by the City of Tacoma in 1956, the Sister City program has built positive international relationships with fourteen cities around the world. Tacoma's Sister Cities all have aspects similar or complementary to Tacoma's economic and civic character. Sister City program activities include Student Exchanges, Sports Exchanges, Performing Arts Festivals, Arts Exchanges and the Sister Cities International Film Festival, hosted this year at The Grand Cinema.
The Grand Cinema is proud to partner with the Sister Cities program to showcase films from many of Tacoma's fourteen Sister Cities. Experience thirteen international films every Monday evening, March 3 - May 29, 2017. Make sure to arrive at 6:30 PM to enjoy a cultural presentation before the film. Special thanks to the City of Tacoma and Sister Cities International for presenting these films.
