My favorite part about this annual programming is the opportunity to see movies of the past back on the big screen. This year, favorites like Hoosiers, set to show on January 8, and Dr. Strangelove, scheduled for February 12, will grace the screen in The Toby at the IMA.

Check out the full schedule here:

  • January 8: Hoosiers (1986): Be sure to arrive early to check out props from the film and meet members of the Milan team!
  • January 15: The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956): Don’t miss Hitchcock trivia and a photo booth pre-viewing
  • January 22: Miracle (2004): Wear your favorite sweater to score a spot in the specialty penalty box seating
  • January 29: Control (2007): Indy’s own Unknown Pleasures band will play a special post-movie show
  • February 5: The Magnificent Seven (1960)
  • February 12: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964): Join early for trivia
  • February 19: Boyz N the Hood (1991): Did someone say hip-hop tunes pre-show?
  • February 26: Princess Mononoke (1997): Check out the amine workshop before the show.
