The Season for Movie Lovers
Springtime is truly the season of the cinephile.
Awards season has come and gone, studio blockbusters still have a month or two before they come into full swing, and instead, some truly strange and beautiful film masterpieces are released. These films tend to be unapologetic, idiosyncratic, surprising; they hold their own.

Spring Movies at The Grand Cinema
Springtime is an interesting season for movies at The Grand. The hubbub of awards are over, no one is bashing you over the head with summer hits, and some memorable films get quietly released. These films tend to hold their own better than the average movie and have an often distinct, not-your-run-of-the-mill personality to boot.

This year, we sat down with volunteers, board members, and staff to hear their stories. Through December, you will here from Van, Winnie, Heather, Bernadette, Katy, Jason, Ken, Lu, and Christopher in our theaters and on social media, sharing why they care about the work of The Grand Cinema.
Read on to learn how you can give back today too!
