Casket Cinema is Mark Wojahn and Wilbur Ince's underground studio-cinema. They started it in 2008. It is dedicated to showing the best in independent documentaries. It is located in the old Northwestern Casket Building in Mark Wojahn's art studio. Films usually show on the first Thursday of every month and begin at 8pm. Films are often paired with local organizations that have a vested interest in the subject matter. At the conclusion of the film we have a question and answer with the special guests. So many times after watching a documentary a person wonders what is the next step? At Casket Cinema, that can be answered immediately during the Q&A. We hope you can make the next screening.
