Classic, independent, international and documentary films are featured year-round at the IMA. Watch a film under the stars on the IMA’s amphitheatre or in The Toby, recently voted "Best Screening Room" by Indianapolis Monthly.

From June to August, the popular The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series features movies every Friday evening on the IMA’s amphitheater. Pack your lawn chair and your picnic, and come hang out in the IMA’s backyard. Catch new and old favorites on the big screens in high-definition DVD and 35 mm all year long.

The IMA also hosts the Indianapolis International Film Festival, the IBE Film Festival, the Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival, and the 48-Hour Film Project.

Summer Nights

Since the series debut in 1976, every summer the IMA has hosted outdoor screenings of films ranging from black-and-white classics to modern hits.
