Spring 2013 Screenings
Bucknell uses The Campus Theatre for Film/Media Studies classroom screenings, which are free and open to the public. In addition, Bucknell also supports The Film/Media Series, a weekly, Tuesday evening series. Film/Media Studies collaborates with a rotating group of university departments and centers to feature important film, video, and other media events in the series. (Film screen schedule)
The Campus Theatre serves as the home for Film/Media Studies classes and screenings. It is also an important bridge between the university and the greater Lewisburg community for promoting the art of cinema.
The theatre, designed by noted Philadelphia architect David Supowitz, opened in 1941 as part of the Steifel Family chain of theatres. It has continuously operated as a single screen movie theatre and remains one of only a handful of surviving art deco cinemas in the world. Facilities include 35mm projection as well as state-of-the-art 2K digital projection with Dolby surround sound.
Today the theatre is operated by an independent non-profit organization that partners with Bucknell to coordinate classroom screenings, film series, community events, and film festivals.
