KCET Cinema Series

Experience the KCET Cinema Series now in two ways: in theatre and online!

Movie fans everywhere can attend exclusive screenings of new films prior to their public theatrical or streaming release, and experience interviews with top filmmakers and award-winning talent now in two ways.

The long-running in-person series returns for its Fall Series on Sept. 6, 13, 20, 27, Oct. 11 and 18 at the historic Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, while the popular virtual series continues on Eventive, a technology platform designed specifically to enhance the online film viewing experience.

Both experiences are hosted by popular film critic Pete Hammond.
