Cool Films Series

Cool Films SeriesFrom the 1930s through the 1990s, Victoria Theatre Association’s Cool Film Series celebrates great American cinema and brings great movies back to the Victoria Theatre. We’ve searched high and low for good 35mm prints, which are getting harder and harder to find–but we’ve found some amazing titles! Some came from our annual audiences surveys, some are celebrating anniversaries, and some are just great films!
