Cinema East is an annual outdoor summer film series that plays premiere films fresh off of the festival circuit. The exhibitionist series is all-ages, bike and BYOB-friendly, and fully compatible with blankets or lawn chairs of all varieties! Doors are at 7pm, and the films begin at 9pm. In addition, each screening is followed by an intimate Q&A with the filmmaker, and an afterparty at nearby locations to be announced. Cinema East has handpicked and curated a "best of the fests" variety, and is a place where all can come to comfortably enjoy premiere independent films without the stress or price of many larger festivals. We're proud to stand behind our community and happy to be able to offer these extraordinary films to casual moviegoers and aficionados alike.

The series features a boutique pop-up theater environment, with musical sets by DJs before the film, local vendors serving fresh, organic produce, and, the series plays host to giveaways from local sponsors and a relaxed outdoor atmosphere. The door cover is a $2-5 sliding scale, pay what you can. Dogs are allowed on the French Legation Museum's lawn.
