Vinegar Hill Theatre

UPDATE June 3, 2020: Vinegar Hill Theatre wants to make as much space as possible for Black activists, organizers, friends, and family during this time, and respect the longstanding pain caused by police brutality in the US. As a community cinema, we’re educating ourselves on how to further support and uplift marginalized voices.

As many of you know, the original cinema was built in the former Vinegar Hill neighborhood, a majority black community, which was destroyed in the mid 1960’s. This devastation is not lost on our staff. VHT opened in 1976 and continues to screen films to educate, facilitate dialogue, and keep our venue available for anyone to mobilize film for a greater purpose. This is a time of reflection for many reasons and while our doors are closed at the moment, our eyes and ears are open. We are sincerely grateful to those who share their powerful stories with us.

Film Recommendations
