Celebrate the holidays with us December 1-2 & 15-18



Heartland Film wishes you and your family a wonderful holiday season! This December is going to be merry and bright with our new mini-movie series, Merry Movie Nights!


We’re so excited to introduce six days of your favorite holiday classic films at the Historic Athenaeum (December 1-2) and Arts for Lawrence’s Theater at the Fort (December 15-18). To bring some extra cheer to your experience, we’ll have free hot chocolate at all of our screenings!


Both of these locations have so many fun winter activities to experience before your film. The Athenaeum is now home to a new Christkindlmarkt and the City of Lawrence is hosting the third annual Winterfest in their Civic Plaza next to Arts for Lawrence. We hope you will join us for this magical movie experience!
