Bama Art House Summer 2017: It’s Movie Time

Bama Art House Summer 2017: It’s Movie Time The Arts Council

If you feel the heat of the summer bearing down on you and you need a little escape – but you don’t have time to take a beach trip, why not take a short break by taking in a movie? I’ve said before that one of my favorite things in the world is to escape into a cool (yay!) dark theater to check out a movie. ANY movie. I love them all. I especially love indie films, and if you’re the same, I’d highly recommend enjoying the films each week at the Bama Theatre downtown during the Summer Art House film series. Hats off to the Arts Council of Tuscaloosa for bringing these new and unique indie films to T-Town!

Screenings in the Bama Art House Summer Film Series begins on Tuesday, June 6, and will feature six movies. Screenings take place each Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. with the box office opening at 6:30 p.m. and doors (and the bar) opening at 6:45 p.m. 

If you’re planning to see several of these movies, there is a season punch card ticket available. It’s $60, and it’s good for any 10 Bama Art House movies in ANY series (including this summer, but also others).

Season punch card Tickets ($60) will be available at the door prior to screenings and will be good for any 10 Bama Art House films in any series (including this summer series). Single tickets will be priced at $8 general, $7 for seniors and students, and $6 for Arts Council members.

Here is this summer’s lineup:

June 6: The Salesman (directed by Asghar Farhadi)

June 13: A Quiet Passion (directed by Terence Davies)

June 20: Citizen Jane: Battle for the City (directed by Matt Tyrnauer)

June 27: Like Crazy (directed by Paolo Virzì)

July 11: The Lovers (directed by Azazel Jacobs)

July 18: The Hero (directed by Brett Haley)


I’ve picked my favorites already – but I won’t tell you what they are, because I want you to discover your own favorites – then we can discuss. To read more about the movies and see the trailers, visit
