The Denis Theatre operated for nearly seventy years in the heart of Mt. Lebanon, PA until it closed in 2004. The project to revitalize the Denis Theatre into a film site and cultural center, which began in 2008, has created tremendous grass roots excitement anticipation in the community. In the Fall of 2009 we launched our Capital Campaign, Phase 1 of which includes purchasing the building, renovating one auditorium, bringing all of the systems up to code, making the building handicapped accessible and bringing art films back to the South Hills as quickly as possible. In 2010, the foundation bought the building. With your help, as well the support of private individuals, arts, youth and education oriented organizations and the large community that has come to love and miss The Denis Theatre we will be successful in our goal to bring movies back to uptown Mt. Lebanon.

Rest In Peace Sean. Thank you for getting Meet Me at the Movies up and running in Pittsburgh- it continues to enrich many lives.

The world of arts and demential program advocates (and many others besides) is shining less brightly because of the all-too-early and all-too-sudden loss of our friend, colleague, and mentor Sean Caulfield. Programs and facilitators around the world that bring together interactions around art and culture with empathy -- in museums, cultural settings and care centers -- owe a tremendous debt to Sean that can
never be adequately repaid. ARTZ Philadelphia is one of those forever indebted to the generosity of spirit, open-heartedness, boundless creativity, and the purest kindness of
Sean Caulfield.

Long live the independent neighborhood theater! Read about these theaters in Massachusetts that reject the commercialized megaplex model in favor of unique film experiences that only an independent theater can offer! https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/travel/2019/03/06/reel-news-the-state-independent-movie-houses-are-not-just-surviving-but-thriving/qfffT8FI8vKYJxOP3BJtFN/story.html?event=event25&fbclid=IwAR3SORcCb5MW5vL60c77xpXRNbAC8vxGStx2XXg4nnAOgLYPH6NWr6gpD5E

In the age of the plush multiplex, when the big cinema thunderdomes are doing everything they can to create an “experience” that will shake customers from their streaming devices, smaller theaters are concocting their own methods to lure us out of our cocoons.
