Now Showing: New Documentary
“Cuba” tells the powerful story of a land preserved in time, yet poised on the cusp of dramatic change. The nation’s vibrant culture, meticulously maintained colonial architecture, and pristine ecosystems provide a vivid window into the island's history and spirit. Filmed through the eyes of Cuban artists, historians and scientists, CUBA will transport audiences across breathtaking landscapes, under the ocean surface to iridescent reefs, and into streets throbbing with music and dance in the heart of Havana. For showtimes, call: 620.665.9347 or 800.397.0330 ext. 347 or check
