the Tri-State Cinema Society website. We are a non-profit
organization promoting an appreciation for film and are located
in the Evansville, Indiana / Henderson, Kentucky area.
Friends of the Tri-State Cinema Society include the Evansville
Vanderburgh Public Library, University of Southern Indiana,
Henderson Community College and the University of Evansville.
Tri-State Cinema Society was born in the Spring of 1995.
The board approached Jack Scott at Old Orchard Cinemas to
see if he would allow us to use his theatre to bring
foreign and other interesting films to the area. He
generously agreed to let us use a screen for free Sunday
through Thursday on selected weeks during the fall and
spring. Three board members put up the seed money to rent
and promote the movies for our first series. We showed
three films and like ballplayers to Ray Kinsella's field
of dreams, you came. We have offered a series of foreign
and independent films every fall and spring since.
NOTE: The Tri-State Cinema Society
does NOT fund any of the series we link to. We are just helping
to advertise them and provide some discussion leadership.
