Matinee Series

Real Art Ways has been showing the best of indie cinema since 1996, with screenings seven nights a week. We’re proud to say that we’re often the only venue in Connecticut, or even New England where movie buffs can catch the films that never make it to the big boxes.

Films typically open on Friday and run through the following Thursday. The lead film will usually include matinee showings on Saturdays and Sundays.

The end dates shown in the schedule below are not always final!
We may hold over a popular film for an additional week(s). Other times, a film may be held over for matinee screenings on Saturdays and Sundays, so check our website frequently for the latest information.
