Historic Venue

CWC presents films at The Garfield Theatre, built in 1970 as a single-screen art house, previously known as the The Place, the Movieola, and the Reel Movies.

Post-Film Discussions

Adding value to viewers’ experience, we often host post-film discussions featuring filmmakers, CWC staff and/or local authorities familiar with the subject matter.
