One screen, seven days a week.

Independent, international, innovative film.


On Screen

Science on Screen

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 you can catch the films that never make it to the big boxes.

New films typically open on Friday with daily screenings through the following Thursday.

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 screenings on Saturdays and Sundays, so check our website frequently for the latest information. You can also subscribe to our weekly eNews to stay in the know.

A Movie in the Afternoon. Every Day.
Are your afternoons free? We now play matinees daily. Recent films, second time around. In the welcoming environment of the Real Art Ways Cinema.
