Church of Film presents The World of Yuri Norstein



Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of our vintage theater, we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Other locations include Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard and the North Star Ballroom. Check the CofF Facebook page for more information about other screenings.

Church of Film presents The World of Yuri Norstein


Wednesday, May 1

Often called the world’s greatest animator, Yuri Norstein built beautiful, evocative worlds of fables and memories, using glass panels to create an elaborate, dimensional layering.
