Est. 2016, SMART KIDS is a free, family-friendly summer film series at the Art Theater Co-op. Smart Kids II plays weekends July 2017. The Art Theater is known for our unique film programming, and we cherish the opportunity to share our vision with the families in our community. Building off of the success of our first year, this year’s program features an international selection of intelligent, beautiful, fun, and wide-ranging films. Particularly in this historical moment, we see cinema as a beautiful opportunity to compassionately engage with the world, its many diverse inhabitants, and their stories.
All screenings in the series are FREE and OPEN TO ALL. Suggested age is 7+ but full content disclosure is available online. We suggest using Commonsense Media.
Short films from CU Film Society’s lauded Pens to Lens program will play before all films.
