Tinker Street Cinema

During its thirty years, Upstate has demonstrated a commitment to film as a medium of social communication and aesthetic experience. Its programming (700-plus screenings per year) is an eclectic mix which, in the course of any particular year, focuses on themes, issues, regions. Frequently, Upstate brings films (e.g., Souleymane Cisse's Brightness or Raul Ruiz ' Life Is a Dream) which are rarely screened in this country, much less in a semi-rural area.
