Cinema Circus

Join us for Cinema Circus: filmmaking activities, face painting, circus antics, a performance, and more for the whole family! Afterwards, parade into the theater and watch award-winning kids’ films from all over the world. This week’s theme is inclusion. Let’s allow our differences to be strengths.

You Can't Play with Us

Dir. Jason Rhein | Animation | U.S.A. | 2017 | 15 min.

A fairytale is surrealist storytelling. Fantastical narratives unlock imagination and offer solutions in our everyday lives, through the absurd. In You Can’t Play With Us we meet a dinosaur inventor, encounter rapping unicorns, and witness a marshmallow avalanche. Despite a feeling of “far, far away,” the emotion in the film seems surprisingly close. A tale of bullying and a search for acceptance offer a uplifting moral nestled in an unconventional story.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 5:30 PM at the Chilmark Community Center



Jan Buhrman of Kitchen Porch Catering will be serving your choice of chicken or vegetable curry, roasted cauliflower, and sweet potatoes over basmati rice. Kid-friendly options are available.

Stick around for the evening's feature film at the Chilmark Community Center:
