Basilica Non-fiction Screening Series 2021 Schedule
In order to comply with COVID-19 restrictions and accommodate a larger audience, Basilica Hudson is thrilled to once again partner with the Greenville Drive-In to move the Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series OUTDOORS. Hosting our series at the drive-in allows us to bring independent and experimental documentary filmmaking to the most people possible, as our own screening room would need to operate at extremely low capacity.
Expanding on our collaboration from last season, this year we will present six films, one a month from May through October. These screenings are free, with a suggested donation of $15 per car made at the box office or online to help sustain Basilica Hudson and support filmmakers. Bring some friends and enjoy the great drinks and snacks at the Greenville Drive-In with a stunning view of the Catskill Mountains. We hope to see you soon!
