COLLABORATE. CREATE. INSPIRE.
An educational outreach program that introduces children to the creative process of making films with a goal of inspiring creativity, teamwork and confidence. We are currently partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows. The kids in the program get to create original 3 minute films, with the help of volunteer professional film crews, screenwriters and talent. After writing and starring in their original pieces, they get to attend a special Red Carpet Premiere of their films at Galaxy Theaters. This process teaches them the power of collaboration, helps build their “yes...and” skills and inspires them to express themselves in a creative way that most have never been exposed to before. The entire process, including the tickets to attend the red carpet premiere, is completely free to everyone involved.

MOVIES IN THE PARK
JULY IN RENO MEANS ARTOWN!
Every Friday in July, in conjunction with Artown, we bring both beloved family friendly classics and award-winning festival favorites to Artown in downtown Reno's Wingfield Park where almost 2k fellow
film lovers watch movies under the stars.
Admission for the films is absolutely FREE and open to all!
Bring your favorite chair or blanket - preferably of the "beach" variety. But, hey - if you wanna haul a La-Z-Boy to a park for a couple hours, you do you, just make sure it's out by the time the credits are finished.
Films begin at 9:00 p.m. every Friday in July.
