Art Cinema receives grant from Knight Foundation

As Coral Gables Art Cinema readies to build a second screen in 2023, the Knight Foundation – an organization that funds free expression and journalism, and arts and culture in the community – announced a $250,000 grant to equip the new auditorium with a 4K digital projection system. Funds will also support a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) production suite to provide filmmakers, video creators, and students with low-cost industry-standard files of their content.

The cinema’s new auditorium will be located at 240 Aragon Ave., just steps from the current cinema space, and will feature a deluxe auditorium, large modern lobby, café, and additional offices. The expansion builds on the cinema’s 12 years of success and will continue its world-class programming, education, and community investment initiatives for future generations.
