Virtual Cinema

Welcome to the Real Art Ways Virtual Cinema!

This platform offers access to new releases by dynamic filmmakers.

The goal of RAW Virtual Cinema is the same as our in-house theater: to present movies that are captivating, provocative, socially conscious, and entertaining.

Let us know what you think.

2021 | Director: Noah Hutton | 83 minutes | NR

A young filmmaker sets out to document a brilliant neuroscientist who has become frustrated with his field’s status quo. With time elapsing and millions of dollars on the line, In Silico explores an audacious 10-year quest to simulate the entire human brain on supercomputers. Along the way, it reveals the profound beauty of tiny mistakes and bold predictions — a controversial space where scientific process meets ego, and where the lines between objectivity and ambition blur.

Available April 30-May 28, thanks to support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
