The upcoming fall 2017 Bama Art House Film Series has been announced. The series features six screenings at the Bama Theatre in downtown Tuscaloosa, with the first scheduled for August 22.

A program of The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, this series will feature drama, comedy, action, and a documentary. The lineup will conclude with the Manhattan Short Film Festival.

For those of you looking for something fun to do with the kiddos this summer, you’ve got plenty of options. Midtown Village’s “Screen on the Green” summer movie series is one way to go. Each Saturday night at 8 p.m. through July 22, a fun, family-friendly film will be shown in the green space at Midtown for free. Things get underway this Saturday, June 17, with “The Secret Life of Pets.”

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!

It’s called Sweet Home Alabama for a reason – it’s sweet and it’s home to almost five million Americans. Alabama has a story unlike any other state in the nation, which is probably while the silver screen is always drawn back to the southern roots that run deep through the Alabama dirt. The movies below were all set in Alabama and are classics that shouldn’t be missed.

Summer is always a great time to catch up on fun things and for me that usually means movies and concerts galore. One of my favorite local traditions is taking in films each week at the Bama Theatre downtown during the Summer Film Series. I wait anxiously for announcements about which films will be shown. Guess what? I have the lineup for you right here, and it’s stellar. Hats off to the Arts Council of Tuscaloosa for bringing these new and unique indie films to T-Town. I'm not saying I don't make time to catch the latest blockbuster elsewhere - just saying I LOVE INDIE and I need a fix...this is the best way to get that fix. And who doesn't love settling into those Bama Theatre seats to catch a movie, am I right?
