May we suggest a little Art Walking tonight followed by a trip Underground at 7pm to see The Miseducation of Cameron Post? Our audiences are loving this poignant, sharp, witty, and significant film, and you will, too!

The Miseducation of Cameron Post, adapted from the novel of the same name, tells the story of Cameron, who in 1993 was sent to a gay conversion therapy center, God’s Promise. While she is being subjected to questionable conversion therapies, she bonds with some fellow residents as they pretend to go along with the process while waiting to be released.

👉🏼You can get tickets online or at the door! We’ll see you at showtime!

Underground Cinema by WVIFF

🤔Question of the Day🤔

How do you volunteer at the Underground Cinema?

At the Underground Cinema, we are primarily run by volunteers and our WVIFF Board of Directors! For each film showing, we need 1-2 volunteers to help us with ticket check-in and concessions! The job is quick (around 45 minutes) and easy!

And bonus! Every time you volunteer with us, you earn a free admission to any of our regular showings! And there’s no limit on the number of times you can volunteer or the number of free admissions you can earn. And of course, you’d be supporting your local cinema!

For convenience, you can even volunteer right before the film you plan to see!

🧐So how does it work?

1️⃣ Search Facebook for “Underground Cinema Volunteers” and ask to join the group! We’ll approve you, don’t worry!

2️⃣ Look for our weekly posts with the days and times we need volunteers.

3️⃣ Comment on the weekly post and let us know when you’d like to come help us out!

We’ll tell you when to be there and what to do! All you have to do is show up!

We are so grateful to be a part of a non-profit organization that is primarily supported through the help of volunteers, and we love having you as a part of OUR cinema because we’re all in this together.

So come join us Underground. We’d love to have you!
