Hundreds of Miami-Dade County residents to benefit from curated film programs presented in their communities.

Coral Gables Art Cinema, South Florida’s premiere nonprofit arts cinema, announced the launch of its Gables Cinema on the Move education and engagement initiative, which takes the cinema experience to classrooms, after school programs, libraries, charities, cultural centers and other venues throughout Miami-Dade County.

The initiative, funded through a $25,000 grant from PNC Arts Alive, brings the organization’s high-quality film programs to new audiences beyond Coral Gables and provide an opportunity to watch and engage with important classic and contemporary films from around the world.

“This grant will help us expand the organization’s core mission to inspire, engage and enhance the community by directly serving new audiences,” said Executive Director and Programming Director, Brenda Moe. “Art-house cinema at times can feel inaccessible to certain audiences. Facilitating human connection through a shared experience with art outside of our four walls is invigorating and we are grateful to the PNC Foundation for enabling this opportunity.”.

“At PNC, we believe that engagement in the arts enriches lives and builds stronger, more vibrant communities,” said Cressman Bronson, PNC regional president for Southeast Florida. “Our collaboration with Gables Cinema on the Move reflects an ongoing commitment to making the arts more accessible to a wide range of audiences in Southeast Florida and supporting the organizations that bring these opportunities to our residents.”

Gables Cinema on the Move features include:

  • Mobile cinema equipped with a Blu-ray player, projector, collapsible screen, and sound system that is easily transported in a vehicle and set up in under thirty minutes.
  • Free admission to a curated selection of classic and notable contemporary films from around the world.
  • Films presented in the primary language of the audience served or have subtitles in that language.
  • Discussion guides created for each film presentation and designed for a wide range of audiences to serve as an invitation to engage more deeply with the film. Guides are designed to encourage participants to explore their own social-ideological beliefs and consider the value of film as an art form.
