IOWA CITY — Iowa City’s FilmScene will debut its new location in the Chauncey next month.
The nonprofit announced Friday that festivites would kick off Sept. 20 with an “opening night soiree.” The ticketed event will include admission to a showing of the movie version of “Downton Abbey” and an open-air terrace party between showtimes at the Chauncey, at College and Gilbert streets.
A free open house hosted by FilmScene and the Englert Theatre is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 21. The open house will feature more than a dozen local arts organizations doing hands-on art projects and a community animation project hosted by FilmScene’s summer camp animation expert.
FilmScene also will begin screening “Field of Dreams” and “The Blob” that day.
On Sept. 22, FilmScene will begin screening “Cinema Paradiso” in the afternoon.
Opening weekend tickets go on sale for members Tuesday and the public on Aug. 30.
