The magic of the neighborhood movie house.
There’s something about a film – the lights go down, the projector warms up, and as one community you’re taken to a new world.
Film has long been a part of the modern Jewish experience; behind the camera, in the scenes, woven throughout the stories told.
Throughout the year, the JCC hosts a variety of film programs and experiences – from our ongoing Free Jewish Film programs, to our special events, lectures & classes, to the annual Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival hosted at the Marcus North Shore Cinema – that celebrate Jewish life, storytelling, and international experiences.
There are any number of lenses from which to tell a story and to learn more about our past, our future, and the world around us. We invite you to join us, grab a seat, and explore them all, together.
