The Hipp Cinema is always screening movies with our audience in mind. Serving as Gainesville’s only art-house cinema, we bring the latest independent films, hard-hitting documentaries, critically-acclaimed world cinema, throwback classics, and additional signature programming throughout the year. Each year we screen approximately 48 films, 40-70 special event screenings, and have 3-5 film festivals.
The Cinema regularly collaborates with local organizations, often working with them to screen content they cannot obtain from distributors. Recently we’ve scheduled partner screenings with the American Institute of Architects, WUFT, and the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding. Gainesville Black Wall Street also collaborates regularly with our Black Films Matter series.
