FINE ARTS

The viewing experience at Fine Arts is similar to that of a traditional theater–reasonably comfortable theater seats on a sloped floor. There are two screening rooms — the downstairs theater seats 250, the smaller, more intimate upstairs theater seats 99.

To reach the screening rooms enter the IU Fine Arts building through the second floor doors off of the circular drive. Look to your left and you’ll see the upstairs Fine Arts theater.

To reach the downstairs theater go to the end of the hall and walk down the stairs. You’ll find the theater on your right.

The Buskirk Chumley Theater is a former movie theater in downtown Bloomington on Kirkwood between Washington and Walnut Streets. It has been beautifully restored and is primarily a performing arts theater but films are still occasionally screened there. The theater seats 600. The Ryder screens films at the Buskirk Chumley on some Sunday afternoons, depending in part on what we are showing, and in part on the availability of the space. Films at the Buskirk Chumley cost a bit more: $5 as opposed to $4 at Fine Arts.

THE TURIN HORSE – Now Playing 

Turin 1899: Nietzsche witnesses a horse being whipped and subsequently retreats into madness. The Turin Horse observes the life of that fateful horse as well as its owners, a farmer and his daughter, who struggle to survive in harsh conditions.

Ryder films on campus are shown on Friday and Saturday in the Fine Arts theaters, on 7th St on the north side of Showalter Fountain.

Ryder moviegoers can park for free, without an IU parking sticker, in the main library parking lot. Simply put a Ryder movie calendar on your dashboard and you will not be ticketed. (This only works when we’re showing movies.) Enter the parking lot off of Jordan just south of 10th Street. You’ll find empty parking spaces in the lanes farthest from the library (and closest to Fine Arts).

Enter the Fine Arts building through the second floor doors off of the circular drive. Look to your left and you’ll see the upstairs Fine Arts theater. To reach the downstairs theater go to the end of the hall and walk down the stairs. You’ll find the theater on your right.
