Final Regular Season Film Forum March 16, 9:30am
Winter 2014 Season Extension at NARO Cinema

Three Additional Sunday Mornings:
March 23
March 30
April 6

Since we will not be offering a Spring Season of Film Forum this year due in part to the late date of Easter in April, we are instead extending the Winter Season by three more Sundays.

A Season Extension pass for the three Sundays is $35. You can sign up for the season with a credit card at the theater or call the cinema or office at 625-6276 or 625-6275.

Join the FirstLook Film Forum

If you love movies, join a discriminating group of cinephiles to share brunch, conversation, critique, and an advance screening of the latest offering from a roster of prominent independent, foreign, and American filmmakers.

Note earlier starting times.

9:30am Brunch and conversation
The aroma of piping-hot, fresh-brewed coffee welcomes you to the Naro Expanded Cinema, where an assortment of Yorgo's bagels and spreads along with fresh doughnuts and orange juice await you -- all included as part of your Film Forum membership. (All other concession items will of course be available for purchase).

10:00am Introduction and Screening
Find your favorite seat to settle into and guest hosts will offer brief introductory remarks.

Our Film Forum hosts include: Fred Levy, William Leiderberg, Greg Raver-Lampman, Rick Hite, Barbara Gardner, and Michael Khandelwal.

Immediately following the screening
Share your own opinion as guest hosts take questions and comments from the audience. Survey cards will be passed out for your written comments and movie rating.

Pick up a membership form at the theatre or call 757-625-6275 (days) or 757-625-6276 (nights) to register.

  What's Playing?
The titles of each program aren't listed on the schedule or calendar. These are real "Sneak Previews", and you won't know what you'll be seeing until you arrive. Many of these films will have regular engagements at the NARO, but you will be the first in Hampton Roads to see them. Unburdened by press reviews or media hype- You're the film critic!

However, sometimes a film comes along which is just too good to keep a secret. So on occasion, the film for a session may be posted here a few days in advance.
