Each month we print a calendar with the month’s movies and special programs.  These are available at the theater, which an average of 600 people visit each month.  We expect that people will post these in their homes for a month of viewing.  

We also print a poster-sized calendar. It is displayed outside in our poster case for the entire month. This is a included with the monthly handout costs.
