The event is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, at 10 a.m. in the Basile Theatre. Tickets for this family-friendly event are priced at $6 and include a bowl of cereal along with movie admission.

Neale Johantgen, President of Indy Film Fest, and Diana Gingerich, Events Manager at the Athenaeum Foundation, shared insights about the event’s ongoing success and community impact.

They emphasized the importance of bringing people together through shared experiences and the joy of reliving favorite films with family and friends.

“We want to be able to have a space where families can come together and parents can show movies that they remembered as a kid,” Johantgen explained.

Additional refreshments can be bought at Coat Check Coffee, located within The Athenaeum. Purchase your tickets here.
