Special Series

Movies That Move You

Our ongoing film series celebrates the Cary Theater’s mission: to bring the best of arthouse cinema to the Town of Cary. We curate classic, independent and unique films with an eye for diverse voices. Some of our series include guest curators from the community who help us select films with special meaning as well as create fun, interactive experiences.
